Review: Static Radio NJ - One for the Good Guys
Label: CD on Black Numbers Records and 7" on Chunksaah Records
Released: August 2007
Oddly enough, even hardcore can over think itself and often enough it ends up getting away from is visceral core as a result. That makes a band like Static Radio NJ refreshing. They aren't rewriting the genre by any means, but they play straightforward East coast hardcore at a blistering pace with just enough melody to keep you on board for the ride (having All/Descendants guitarist Stephen Egerton produce certainly didn't hurt them on the melody front). In classic fashion, Static Radio NJ fit seven bursts of adrenalin in less than 10 minutes. It may not be long, but you'll need the breather when it's over before you play it again.
