Product Details
Olde Tyme Hardcore starts with a clip from the '70s hockey movie that gave Slapshot their band name. (The title is actually a triple pun: hockey, the touristy Revolutionaryera kitsch of the band's native Boston and the fact that this kind of oldschool hardcore was entirely out of fashion are all being referenced here.) From that opening, the band blast through nine furious slabs of straightedge fury with the wildeyed abandon of true believers tempered with a bit of wistfulness. There's a hint of nostalgia not just on the title track, but on the album's centerpiece track, a fiery cover of SS Decontrol's "Get It Away," arguably the best Boston straightedge single. Singer Jack Kelly called Slapshot a day after the release of this album, after over 13 years as one of Boston's premier hardcore bands, and that "end of an era" sense hangs over this entire album.
