Thisclose - s/t
Discharge. Possibly the most copied punk band of all time inspiring an entire genre called d-beat. Two monstrous nuclear stockpiles worth of bands called Dis-something. Endless 7"s with black and white sleeves and covers depicting the horrors of war.
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
Because a d-beat is like a banging donk to a crusty. The punks just love it.
They like to pretend the late 80s didn't happen though. Discharge have reformed and are back playing their greatest hits. Nothing from the late 80s though.
Discharge didn't just go a bit metal. They weren't full tilt over the top into hair metal territory
Grave New World was the album they all try to forget. However, a few people secretly love this album.
Unlike every other d-beat band out there Thisclose are inspired by the Grave New World era of Discharge. Metallic riffs and screeching vocals.
They do it pretty damn well too.
