Pretty cool ripper of a tape here from Japanese Women through the Tapes of a Neon God label, who also put out the rather good Great Falls/Pink City split that I wrote about awhile back. However, Quality Control is exclusive property to the members of Japanese Women and while they don’t eat up the space given to them exactly, the time that they do spend packs an impressive punch. Adding up to roughly thirteen minutes from what I can tell, these guys blast out eleven tracks of wonderfully blended noisy hardcore that isn’t short on riffs either. While able to maintain a break neck pace, there are moments that reveal themselves to be highly in debt to vintage years of noise-rock. It’s quick and it’s greatly pissed off. At least they’ve managed to convince me that it is. No matter, I’m digging this quite a bit. Definitely worth the five and shipping that they are asking.
