"The Usual Suspects" (Dead City; 2009)

Reviewed by Mike SOS


Stalwart NYHC crew Billy Club Sandwich return with another EP containing eight tracks of crushing beatdown-laden grooves with "The Usual Suspects."

Fans of Madball and Sheer Terror (who BCS lovingly cover here with "Ready to Halt") now have another record in their collection to bust heads to, as tracks like the pummeling "Far From the Truth," the relentless assault of "Shark Tank" and the Spanglish stomp of "Bodega" can definitely rally the troops to get involved on the dance floor.

Despite this release's short length, there's no shortage of aggression or BCS' trademark sense of humor (just check out the spoof movie posters included in the album's artwork) from this veteran unit's latest endeavor, making this disc a perfect choice to accompany a rowdy night out.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
