Chronic Sick "The Cutest Band In Hardcore" EP (1982)
It seems that a lot of people that even know about this band hate them. I really can't see why. I don't feel that I can post this without including this great review they received in 1983, here goes...
Last and definitely least The Cutest Band In Hardcore E.P. by Chronic Sick. This is the worst. The worst words. These kids should get beat up. If they want to be shocking why don't they kill themselves on stage. I think that's better than writing racist and sexist songs that will make people want to kill them anyway. We appreciate a colorful crowd so if they know what's good for them they won't play New York again.
-Javi Savage, from Big City zine #4, May/June 1983
Really I love this record. Six tracks of punky New Jersey Hardcore, "Dress Code" being my favorite falling almost into a power-pop/Ramonesy kinda thing towards the end. Fuck yeah!
1. There Goes The Neighbourhood
2. Dress Code
3. Public Suicide
4. Man Rape Blues
5. Mucho Macho
6. Pain For Profit
