egg hunt ep

A 2-song studio effort by Ian MacKaye and fellow MINOR THREAT Jeff Nelson. This one-shot deal shows that power doesn’t always come from raging guitars, pounding drums, and screaming voices. Good, inspired lyrics and fine music (with Ian on guitar and bass not since the TEEN IDLES days?) fit hand-in-hand to place this well-produced 7″ high on my list. Too bad we probably won’t hear anything else from EGG HUNT. Ian told me that his desire to play music still runs strong, and his new band is taking form, and hopefully by this summer, we’ll hear from them. (DISCHORD RECORDS) [MICKEY]
