LOSING STREAK - CRACKED 7" (NJW - 023)
Wow, what's with all these cool Belgian bands these days. Seems like they got over the metalcore of the 90's and I for one am more than happy about that. LOSTING STREAK are another band that make me want to jump all around the place, something all the bands on NJW records are affecting me. This is only good. Another 7" of awesome quality, in the recording and quality of songs - nothing like a great 7" (my favourite format) to clear off the cowbwebs. A mixture of old an new, brewing the likes of OUTBREAK, SHARK ATTACK and their own charm and delivering it second to none. Another fine example of playing your hearts out, positive and powerful. Just like their label mates Damaged Goods, LOSING STREAK pack a punch of great hardcore. Their lyrics are inspiring and full of plenty of sense. They are straightedge and not afraid to let you know, but hey, not in a we're better than you way - just because they are. Neat packaging too, and looking at the photos of them it makes wish they were the sound track to my pit.
