Andrew Pearson Man, I put on my new State of Alert album and bent over to tie my shoe, and when I looked up it was over! Seriously, it's about eight and a half minutes long. When you have to decide, though, between hearing Henry Rollins's first band digital on Bandcamp or ponying up $275 to get the original EP from some greedy fuck on Discogs, most people don't exactly change tabs to purchase the physical format. Like me, you may need a few listens to appreciate "No Policy," but it blows the roof off. Favorite track: Gate Crashers.
