BURN 'EM DOWN 7"
01. Burn 'em Down
02. Urban Rebels
Label: Riot City Records
Cat #: RIOT 16
Pretty uneventful outing. The A-side sounds like a '78 US punk band imitating a '77 UK band; the B-side is more modern-paced, but unimaginative.
-Tim Yohannan (from Maximum Rocknroll #3, November/December 1982)
More urgent and exciting than their debut 7", this single boasts two vibrant street anthems which update the '77-punk style into the '80s. A powerful guitar mix combined with a slashing vocal attack merge especially well on "Urban Rebel," even though the flip is almost as good. Abrasive Wheels have become a definite contender.
