“ Those in East Flatbush have realized precisely that the strikes to come will need to take new forms, that the oppression we each experience will be fought on our own streets, in our own neighborhoods, against those whose job it is to keep us down: cops, politicians, and so-called community representatives, in collaboration with our bosses and landlords. ”

“ Such appeals to the moral superiority of work and workers are often rooted inproducerism: the notion that the fruits of society’s wealth and labor should return to those who directly perform productive labor. Producerism is hostile both to parasitic elites at the top of society and to the allegedly unproductive indigents at the bottom, hence its relationship to the political Left and Right is ambiguous. But in post-industrial capitalist society, “work” has come to be disconnected from any conception of directly producing something or contributing work with any specific content. Work is increasingly defined formally: as whatever people do in return for wages. With this elision, the material foundation of the work ethic is gradually undermined, and today the absurdity of the work ideology becomes readily apparent. For while it has never been the case that labor was rewarded in proportion to its contribution, it is now quite obvious that wage work is not identical to productive activity, and that the rewards to labor have lost any connection to the social value or desirability of the work performed. ”
Powerviolence from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Fast and totally fearless. With D on drums, Matt on bass and Bryan on Guitar, they all share vocal duties with Avry now taking the lead. The Cheap Art EP which was released before the tape does not include vocals from Avry but is pretty brutal and still kicks ass.
