GET RAD-Choose Your Own Adventure (Get Rad/Halo of Flies/The Perpetual Motion Machine, 7"EP)
When I was a kid, I had a Bugs Bunny set that came with a book and two 10" records that spun at 78. Yes, I'm old, deal with it. Get Rad's latest missive is accompanied by a booklet where you're given choices to make and then flip to whatever page your choice leads you. The lyrical contents echo that narrative. As usual, with this Milwaukee band, the music is enjoyable, buzzing old-school hardcore punk with burn and occasional melodic touches. And it's a good thing it plays at 45 instead of 78 because my turntable doesn't have that speed option.

Al also does an awesome radio show Sonic Overload. He's trying to upgrade his website & equipment, so check out the show, donate a few bucks & mosh it up around your computer.
