Even after twenty years of existence, Despise You has never felt the need to record a full-length, preferring to release split after splits after EP. The West side horizons compilation gave fans a chance to listen to all these tracks in a row without having to track every individual seven inches but it’s still isn’t the same. Therefore to celebrate their twentieth years of recording, Despise You has finally a released… a new ËP with only three track, one of them being a cover of Rich Kids on LSD (R.K.L.).
Along the years, the changes made to Despise You‘s style of power violence are very limited. Both songs offer the same standard of punk vocals, punk rock riffs played three times as fast and some blasting. The sound is also the same, not too raw but very live sounding thanks to Brad Boatright, from Audiosiege, excellent mastering. Members of ACxDC, among others, are featured as contributor to the gang vocals on Centinela park and it’s probable that the drummer on this recording is also the drummer for the same band since he was playing with them on their European tour.
In fact, Despise You continues to pay tribute to the L.A. punk scene after covering Fear on their split with Agoraphobic Nosebleed they move to R.K.L.The cover is as fast as the original and sounds less aggressive but is still pretty effective. Another solid addition to D.Y.‘s discography.
