16 track debut from the Nerve Agents combines their Punk and Hardcore influences such as Youth Of Today, Black Flag, and Circle Jerks with 7 Seconds, the Cro-Mags and Cause For Alarm, to form a sound all their own. 2000 release. They're gonna arbitrarily swab on the mascara and sing about how screwed-up life is in Portland, Oregon. It's "punk" to hate stuff. It's also "punk" to have these faux macho photos of your band rocking out at Gilman, or some place that looks similar. Nowadays, punk bands make a living hating society. Non-conformism ready for you to purchase, when you get back from buying your Hatebreed t-shirt at the mall.
