Idiot Talk - EP

Idiot Talk is from France, but they sound more Canadian to me, mostly because they sound VERY MUCH like Career Suicide, Canada's #1 moderny-but-80s-sounding hardcore punk band that I'm not sure whether or not still exists.

This particular record has five songs which last less than seven minutes, so it's got a very good rating on the GSRS (Group Sex Ratio System*).

The songs on this record seem to loosely follow a theme of people drifting apart/disagreeing about life/falling out of punk sort of thing. Think Salad Days. Not sure if that was on purpose.

There's really not much else to write about this record. Do you like 80s hardcore? Do you like Career Suicide? If you answered 'yes' to one or more of these questions, you'll probably like this record.

Here's a song by Idiot Talk that isn't on this record:

*The Group Sex Ratio System is a record rating system which follows the wisdom of The Circle Jerks on their perfect first album, which was about 15 songs in about 15 minutes.

  1. Music wise this sounds nothing like Career Suicide, who are still together by the way.
