Anger Means: Not Human Anymore (1991)
Produced by local legend, Kevin army, Anger Means were East Bay punk rock. ‘Withdrawn’ begins when the singer states “I’m withdrawn”, and someone else in the band says "Huh?" and it's quiet for a second, but then the song blasts off, and I imagine a giant pit exploding, as kids skank their way to slam dancing paradise. It's how a record should start: quick, angry and to the point. There are lots of moments like this on “Not Human Anymore” but ‘Withdrawn’ is the best, two and a half minutes of pure punk rock pleasure.
Withdrawn / Ruins / Goodbye
Dirty widows / Scarred by spine / Descend
