REVIEW: LiveFastDie - Hit Stains (Almost Ready)

Almost Ready Records has been killin' it lately and their latest release, a full-length discography of NYC punk legends LiveFastDie, is no exception.  If you're not hip to this band yet you probably should be...that is if you dig blown-out, nihilistic punk rock music you can scream along to.  LFD is so much more than just 'tude and scuzz though; behind their wall of sonic ugliness lies melodic, hook-filled tunes that have/had broad appeal.  Almost Ready's website even claims: "It's a well-known fact that LIVEFASTDIE almost single-handedly kept punk rock alive in post-Y2K New York City."  I have no authority to justify this lofty statement, but it would seem to make a lot of sense.  This band is everything you want from a punk band...nothing more, nothing less.  Get it here.
