Straight Edge Razor

In case you can't get enough Brendan Radigan bands...XfilesX, Rival Mob, Battle Ruins, Magic Circle, Stone Dagger...React! Records gives us one more with Straight Razor.

Back in February, I was pretty excited to grab a test press for this 7 inch. It was a cool experience to own a record that wasn't yet available to even order at the time.

Straight Razor were a straight edge band, but honestly, I was hoping this was going to be a bit over the top with its edge-ness. I expected this to be right up in your face, with lyrics in the vein of Slapshot. Radigan has an over the top personality with his bands, and I expected this one to follow suit. Basically we just get more Rival Mob style lyrics...still good, but not what I was hoping for.

150 on gold vinyl, and 350 on black.

Bummer that this band won't be doing anything else (I assume) since Brendan has lost his edge since recording this. Great EP though.

If you don't like it then I think that you should give me your test press. Thanks in advance.

Ha ha...I did like it, you stooges! I just hoped it was more "in your face" straight edge...but I guess that since Brendan is no longer edge, that explains things.
