The moment you realize this album could have easily been a complete killed by death sampler or some non-existent CRISIS, WIRE, WARSAW demo hybrid recording from 1977…

NEW BERLIN started out as a one man project in TEXAS. Indeed, the 13-track, 24-minute affair is the stuff that ’80s indie dance nights are made of. The McAllen-based trio — founded by Michael Flanagan, Gustavo Martinez, and Andrew Richardson — cut a rug with ringing guitars, frantic bass lines, and hyperactive drums, sounding like a particularly nervous SMITHS trying to impress John Peel.
