What: First 7" EP of this Ontario band's brand of noisecore. Released on Init Records.
When: August 2004
Where: Toronto, ON
Why: The debut recording of a criminally underrated band.
[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]
