Add the UK's Obstruct to my ever-growing list of top notch straight edge bands coming from across the pond. Following a demo from last year (which I have coming in the mail at some point) this band plays a early 80's UK/USHC hardcore, very similar to fellow Englishmen Violent Reaction and The Flex. This thing reminds me a lot of the VxR EP that dropped last year and like that, I've been listening to this thing a ton. Put out on Northern Wisdom records, I snagged a copy of orange vinyl, limited to 100 copies. This single sided 7" is by far the thickest/heaviest 7" I've ever seen. It's almost the weight of two 7"s combined.
