Chinese street-punk meets German hardcore on this 10” split. Sick Times step up to the plate with seven cuts of classic ‘80s style hardcore, each under a minute-and-a-half. Tracks like “Trash Diet” talk about our addiction to processed food and the industrial meat industry, while “Fuck the Kids” addresses decreased attendance at shows and lack of support for the scene. Sick Times also throw in two classic covers, “World Up My Ass” by the Circle Jerks and “I Love Hardcore Boys” by Limp Wrist.

Gum Bleed holds up their side with two longer offerings. The three-and-a-half-minute “Commando” throws down heavy hardcore with backing vocals, bridges and solos, while the five-minute “Kiss Me I’m Punk” offers a lighter, more punky stab at a love song. Capturing the best from two scenes, East and West, this record will make you want to crack open a beer, crank up the volume, and let the sick times roll!
