STRAIGHT AHEAD -- “Breakaway" 12” EP

6 songs that amount to less than 10 minutes of music – lots of wasted wax here, it should have been a 7”. The music is typical N.Y. mosh stuff, the only twist being the rather throaty vocals. Not very original, but executed nicely. Cliched positive themes abound, as songs like “We Stand” and “Spirit of Youth” attest (Some Recs., 210 East 6th St., N.Y., NY 10003) [TONY]
