Thorp Records' Unsung Series is an awesome concept, as it introduces listeners to the bands that have influenced the bands they admire today.

This installment contains the recordings of Philadelphia's Two Minutes Hate, an outfit which featured label head Andy Thorp on vocals for six of the twelve tracks and whose hardcore, blue collar spirit embodies what the scene really should be about: giving a voice to the downtrodden, hope to the misled and above all, an outlet for aggression. 

For fans of bands like H20 and the countless bands that play VFW halls across the country, this CD should be a history lesson and a chance to hear that your music was handed down to you from the elders.
