Blood for Blood - Wasted Youth Brew

Posted on Friday, September 10, 2010

“…this next song goes out to the fantasy people out there, it goes out to all the wiggers, all the white people that wear FUBU gear, all the fuckin’ MTV faggots who can’t stand on their own two fuckin’ feet and be fuckin’ themselves…” Thus starts the last song (a live version of “Paper Gangster”) on this 73+ minute look at the career of Blood for Blood. In fact, the last 11 songs were all recorded live at a show from January, 2001. The sound on the live tracks is excellent, and it’s great to finally hear this Hardcore behemoth live, even if they do come off a little more like Gang Green than Carnivore, at least in the between-song rants. But, although the live show would be plenty of reason to own this CD, it’s hardly the only one or even the most compelling. What I found to be the most indispensable part of this release is the first half, which is comprised of tracks from 7-inches, demos, compilations, and one less-than-awesome previously unreleased track (for which the band apologizes in the liner notes: “I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I hear that thing”). These songs include several covers (Wretched Ones’ great sing-along “Goin’ Down the Bar,” Slapshot, and Deadboys), as well as the cuts from the Hurt You demo, the absolutely incredible “Soulless,” and more. If you ask me, this is about as essential as things get - a must buy situation, if you will.
