CD Reviews

Good, but not a good starting place
(4 out of 5 stars)

"An good EP, this will be of interest more to people already fans of GVSB. It shows the early side with the current line up, and the last three songs are what remain of Fugazi's Brendan Canty's short-lived career with GVSB. I would recommend this to anyone already a fan of GVSB, especially if you like the albums prior to Freak*on*ica. However, this would definitely not be a good starting point if you do not own any GVSB albums."
Early GVSB shows their techno roots

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Back in the early 1990's, the musical consortium known as Girls Against Boys existed as a co-operative of various artists in and around the Washington DC punk underground. 90's VS 80's showcases members of the Dischord spirit rockers Soulside (who make up the band as it exists today) as well members of other Dischord bands like Fugazi and Fire Party. 90's VS.80's demonstrates GVSB techno roots, the sound of GVSB before the velvet metal of the late 1990's. Six songs of trancendental drum and bass grooves, combined with post-apocalyptic guitar, Girls Against Boys will make you wish you insured your car against damage caused by armed insurrection and nuclear fallout. Also recommended is their sophomore effort, Tropic of Scorpio which cools the hot, sticky, city summer nights like an oily gin cocktail."
