What: Second cassette EP released by the band's just this year!
When: June 2014
Where: Indianapolis, IN
Why: The four Cs of Midwest Hardcore: crime, crust, core, cassette. Also, they cover a Danzig song on this one.
[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.]

Boddicker - Crime Upheaval
Verdict: Earlier this month, you read me going gaga over False Flag. Boddicker is crucial listening. The most impressive band in the America right now.
