(record review)GREAT COLLAPSE-“Neither Washington, Nor Moscow…again(End Hits Records)

Great Collapse is, how I hate this word, hardcore punk supergroup, fronted by Strike Anywhere singer Thomas Barnett. This is their second album via End Hits Records.


The album contains 11 songs of melodic hardcore punk, played with ferociousness and virtue and above all, heart and soul. The song structures are fast paced drumming, some screamed and some sung vocals but above all, anthemic melodies are the stuff that make this album excellent. Lyrically, the topics are political activism, anti fascist action and socio political sensitivity. These guys have their hearts and minds in the right place and it is awesome that such bands with such lyrics bring across their ideas to the new generations of kids in the crowd. Absolute highlights on this album for me are “Who Makes?”, “Meltdown”, “An Injury To One” and “Patient Zero Comes Home”.
