"Thin the Blue Line" C26
(Split Banana Records)

Final Cop shares the same grim, industrial genetics as German Army, but eschews all of that namby-pamby, reflective/meditative stuff and worldly wisdom and focuses instead on working out the frustrations and ineffectuality that comes from suffering through a hard, city livin’.

For a GeAr ReLaTiVe, these songs come off like a (rightfully) jaded early 20s streetpunk testing the murky waters of self-medication and organized crime. Sounds like it might not pull one out of a bad mood so much as help cook up plans for revenge.
