It is very rare that I listen to the sub genre known as Crust & not because I think the music sucks. I generally avoid Crust bands because the fans of that style of music smell like fermented shit. My fear being, I find a band I like, they play Las Vegas, & now I am stuck in a small hot venue that smells worse than the Waste Water Treatment facility on Vegas Valley Dr. Recently, I have noticed a new trend where kids into Crust wear clean denim jackets with patches by such bands as Fleas And Lice, Dirt, Filth, Nausea, & Assrash! These bands hint at smelling like shit while the listener remains scentless… I can get behind that. For years I have heard of Anti-Cimex, but I never felt (scent wise) safe checking them out till now & I am sure glad I did because this record fucking rules!
This record sounds a lot like Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing by Discharge, but I think I like this mini LP more so than that legendary album. What we have here are 6 songs, 5 of them being the best examples of D-Beat, & an odd track that is a bit more Rockin', which helps keep everything interesting. Some of the lyrics are pretty dumb but what do you expect from a Swedish band singin' in English? "Make my day cunt! … Go Ahead, Go Ahead You Cunt, You Cunt!" Whoever wrote those lyrics was obviously our generation's Shakespeare.
An original copy of this record sells for well over a hundred bucks, so thank the fucks at Nada Nada Discos & Spicoli Discos for reissuing this and selling it at a reasonable price. With all the money left over you can buy some Lee Press-On Filth at Hot Topic & impress everybody at the next Doom reunion. If you like Punk and have a butt flap you already love this band, if you are into Metal & dig shit like Hellhammer & Venom this is well worth checking out…
