the uprise one by one

THE UPRISE -- "One By One" EP

“Oh no, skinheads!” is what you’re probably thinking. But these guys are different. They’re really nice and they’ve dedicated to the scene. And their EP rips, to boot! They’ve really improved, and their melodious sound comes across incredibly well. They’ve also matured a lot lyrically. Very positive lyrics (despite the titles), especially in “Destruction” where they plead for unity. Now that LEGITIMATE REASON has called it quits, THE UPRISE seem to be the most promising band here in Philly, Watch for them! ($5 ppd. to OiCore! Records, 302 Penn St., Newtown, PA 18940) [MICKEY]
