HINGE – Meaning EP 1994

This is a great EP from an all but forgotten Milwaukee band. I found this record in a local dollar bin, and I was immediately struck by the stark but beautiful artwork, featuring appropriated photographs.  I had never heard of this group, but I am definately happy to add this record to my collection.  The music is well written emotional hardcore, which could perhaps be likened to a less gruff Econochrist,  and it sounds great on the record.  This also came with a nice 8 page booklet with full lyrics, and artwork.  The best song on here is  ‘How The West Was Won’, an impassioned rebellion against the bullshit lies that we as American children are taught in order to gloss over the sick reality of the genocide which was perpetrated by the US government, and it’s citizens, against aboriginal Americans.  The first song, ‘Psalm’ also kicks ass with its pissed off chorus of “Where is your God? Where is Your God?”.   My favorite of these four songs, however, is ‘Rhyme and Reason’, a short, tight, thrash number that manages to remind me of both Oi Polloi and Minor Threat, oddly enough.  All in all a kick ass record from Wisconsin that deserves to be heard. Anyone with info on Hinge or Vagary Records, please comment!
