Married Punks #4: Total Chaos "Patriotic Shock" Review

Transcribed as it originally appeared in Married Punks#4, which most likely was published in 1995.

Total Chaos Patriotic Shock cassette

This is a new favorite of mine. Hard punk that has more in common with the Exploited than it does with Bad Religion. The tape opens with a sample of a Parliament hearing I believe, that can also be found on the Sex Pistols' Pirates of Destiny. Then it launches in with punk rawk the way it should be played, tackling all the important issues in their lyrics backed with fast guitars and snarling vocals. Fuck yeah! Let's go back to the early '80s!
