OK, so a bit of a weird week overall, but don’t blame the messenger. I just write about this shit. WHAT TO HEAR: Kicking things off in fittingly caustic fashion is Generation Coward (Willowtip Records), the latest batch of ruthless political grind from Orange County legends Phobia. A direct response to the horror of being […]
