Some Kind of Hate: garage-punk, a dark debut, and a hard rock Relapse

"The familiar faces of John Robinson (Turf War), Joe Hardwick (Acid Freaks), and Shane Patrick (Hawks) will soon bring a fresh, dark punk sound to local clubs as Illegal Drugs. Last week, a two-song demo was posted on Bandcamp, in time to hype the group's Feb. 19 debut at 529. Both tracks are marked by a D.I.Y. take on the Gun Club’s guitar slinging, with a touch of Killing Joke darkness."
