27. THE REPOS “Heads and Hearts Explode” LP

Throw this record on and watch your life crumble. This opus clocks in at 11 minutes and 36 seconds, just in time to ruin your weekend r’n’r and your optimism for life in general. With a looser, more free-form indifference to their playing, their second full length charges on with their same frenzied fist-the-face blend of Poison Idea/Youth of Today rage as previous efforts, but only louder. The majority of this material was written and recorded on the spot in the studio just to add to the schizo urgency you’ve come to expect from Chicago’s tallest maniacs.
