GUN CONTROL 12"
01. Gun Control
02. Personal Phone Call
03. Capital Punishment
04. Artificial World
05. Human Race
06. New Religion
Label: National Security Records
What we have here is a bunch of medium-speed punk tunes with a melodic orientation. Songs like "Gun Control" and "Capital Punishment" (which has simplistic "law and order" lyrics) are straightforward numbers with good, strong hooks, but certain other songs are less memorable and lacking in energy. An uneven debut, but Civil Defense have potential.
