Kim Phuc: Copsucker LP
Originally slated to be released on Parts Unknown but delayed for a near eternity, and eventually landing in the hands of Iron Lung Records, this is Kim Phuc's debut LP. "Copsucker" is the pinnacle sound of a band that has been crafting, honing and re-imagining the way punk music should be played, with so much raw atmosphere and energy that it will probably rip you apart. Be careful. We believe they are that good. If you have had the good fortune to see these guys live then you already know that they are unbelievably tight and intensely powerful without having to lean on novelty or pretense to hook you. Rob might accidentally rub some sweat mud on your pants front but once he's come down he'll most likely offer to clean that victory stain off lickety-split. For those unfamiliar with the Kim Phuc sound, it lands somewhere near the idea of Warsaw -era Joy Division on steroids with a distinct Pittsburgh edge. Second pressing of the LP comes on light blue vinyl in black/white sleeve with poster insert.
