Flex, The - "Chewing Gum For The Ears"
PLEASE NOTE: Due to shipping from the plant to the wholesaler, the LP covers of this release have corner dings, but the vinyl itself is indeed new and unplayed.
To be honest, they all look fine to me.
One of the defining bands of the NWOBHC scene and boasting members of Violent Reaction, Arms Race, Rated X, and many others, The Flex returns after an eight-year gap between full-lengths. Sonically, James Atkinson, of Voorhees and Gentlemen's Pistols fame, has captured the band's sound perfectly; all-trebly, buzzsaw guitars, guttural vocals, and a perfectly tight rhythm section, whilst Tin Savage's ever excellent art ensures a level of visual consistency that few bands are able to maintain. Influences rage from Antidote to Death Side to Outburst, and everything in between.
