I Can´t Wait / Human Race 7″
When I first saw that Teenadelic Records, a new Punk & Powerpop label from Rome / Italy, did just set sails by throwing an exclusive release party for this, their prime 7″ by HUMAN RACE adding PROTEX as the headliner for this event, I instantly knew that this label is bound to be awesome. Come on, we all know that you just can´t go wrong after having picked a tasteful label name like that plus being a devoted fan of PROTEX as well getting them over to your hometown for just one gig. That´s passion, that´s dedication, two of the most important ingredients that make a record label great and worth every support the scene has to offer.
As expected the proof of this theory is only seven inches away in form of the HUMAN RACE hijacking your record player with an A-Side starter that is one part blasting through the bass lines of the one and only SLAUGHTER & THE DOGS spitting out a speed pitched version of “Boston Babies” to a lunatic safety pinned Roxy Club crowd and the other part barking out a disgust driven version of the DRONES “Lookalikes”.
As opposed to this the B-Side admittedly is reducing tempo to cool down the spit soakened Punk crowd still gasping for air but nevertheless manages to keep the temper high and the action going by combining some highly addictive and memorable Junkshop Glam tinged guitar chords with a hate fueled temper that reminds me a lot of the 1981/1982 U.K. Punk Class graduates DEMOB and especially DEAD WRETCHED with their alltime fave “No Hope For Anyone”.
