Cola Freaks / Autistic Youth - 7" (BlackWater-Taken By )


"Autistic Youth: Brings up a philosophical question I often think about
when dealing with music. If a band (The Observers) who were amazing,
broke up too soon (in my estimation), how do I feel about a band
(Autistic Youth) who basically picked up the torch and ran down another
alley with it? It gets into an involved algorithm: 1.) How much time has
passed? 2.) Is it a straight-up rip or did they come to similar
conclusions independently? 3.) Does it rock in and of itself beyond any
itches it may scratch by being so familiar? I’ll say this—Autistic Youth
are on to something extremely powerful and well worth listening to and
they just happen to sound like the best of The Observers (see issue #47
for what they actually sound like). Cola Freaks: Their previous 7”
sounded like Vicious-lite mixed with Knugen Faller-lite, but something
big clicked into place, and they take some of the sting out of all those
great Swedish punk revival bands in the Ny Vag tradition that’ve broken
up left, right, and center. This music heart’s still pumpin’ new blood
no matter how many times it’s volleyed into another set of bodies. Great
stuff all around." –Todd Taylor - RAZORCAKE
