IN DEFENCE/PARTY BY THE SLICE split 7″ EP (Berzerker/Crash Assailant/ Goodtimes/Insulin Addicted) [RM15]
Good luck trying to find seven inches of wax with more fun crammed into it than this split between Twin Cities tacolytes In Defence and Milwaukee pizza-eaters Party By The Slice. Which band delivers the most fun? On “Bromophobia,” In Defence offers this line: “You’re just a boy with a cheesy mustache, Wanda Sykes is going to kick your ass.” On the flipside, Party By The Slice pairs the classic line from Romero’s Dawn of the Dead “When there’s no room left in hell, the dead will walk the earth” with “By the time they make it to the lunchroom, they’ll get their just desserts.” When you’re talking zombies, you’re talking my language.
