The cult of Straightjacket Nation is very real. Since 2004, the Melbourne band – who feature members of Pisschrist, Total Control and The UV Race – have delivered raw hardcore that draws on Cleveland and Boston styles as well as the experience of living in regional and metropolitan Australia.
It is harsh and vile music that has developed a rabid, and well deserved following in the Australian and international hardcore scenes.
The self-titled album contains tracks like "10K Chavs" and "Harsh Hand" that dig deep in the Straightjacket psyche and "Power It Up" is just as mean and menacing on record as it is in a small venue with knees in your back.
'Straightjacket Nation' is available through Cool Death and LVEUM.
