Varukers

How Do You Sleep?????

Go-Kart

I’d heard about The Varukers for awhile, so I expected this to be good. It’s OK, but I’m more than a bit disappointed. Although their hearts are often in the right place, railing against all the usual PC targets (“gun crazed kids,” Internet Nazis, taxes, blah blah), this is so unoriginal and simpleminded that it could be substituted for any of hundreds of other hardcore records out there where the “lyricist’s” (and obviously I use the term loosely) fave adjective is “fucking.” Wow, like, anarchy, man.

To put it in language even these sods could figure out, pretty bloody boring. Cool hair though.
