Ten wonderful minutes of old-school hardcore from way back in 1983, the debut 7" from New England stalwarts Psycho sounds a lot more like the poppy punk Ramones then the noisy grindish hardcore they'd eventually degrade to. Perennial vocalist/guitarist Johnny X gives his gravelly voice a rest on this one so one-shot crooner Mick Keddy can fulfill the vocal duties - a rather pleasant change of pace. Straight, no-bones punk from a working-man's band who has consistently been doing it for the past 30 years. Fucking amazing.
