From the hardcore ashes of their former band Nordic Waste, guitarist Pat Laney and drummer Mike Wilson put together a new group that sounds more upbeat and catchier. Not much more upbeat though; thankfully, they kept the snot-nosed punk vibe. They’ve also slowed it down (a little), stripped it down and moved away from the repetitious double-time tempos to make way for a bit of country-trash thump and slap. Seth Borovsky, who also plays with Laney in the Undesirables, has been the steady bassist for well over a year, replacing Trevor Peterson. Hard Feelings released a tape in 2010 and recently recorded new songs for a 10-inch vinyl split EP.
