Collision - Tiebreaker 7" - Yellow Vinyl
I've had this 7" sitting around for a little bit. My buddy Rich from Speedowax records sent it to me along with a ton of Broccoli 7" variants that I bought from him. I kind of just let it sit because frankly, I've never had much luck with freebie stuff thrown into an order. Well, I've finally taken a listen and I've got to say, this may be the best freebie ever.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is the greatest record in the world, but considering how I came across it and my usual angry old man vibe, I'm just so pleasantly surprised. Collision play fast, really fast. They definitely lean towards bands like Lifetime on the pop punk scale. Though Lifetime was never one of my favorite bands, Collision play with catchy enthusiasm and I'm particularly caught by the vocals and how clean & strong they sound.
It's pretty nice to be surprised by a record like this. I encourage all labels to throw in some extra nonsense to check out when I buy something from them!
