LEFTOVER CRACK are a scarce commodity in the music world, having generated a sub-genre which was completely unique. Drawing on the success of their first iteration, Choking Victim, LEFTOVER CRACK took ska/punk/crust to new heights with the innovation of what they cheekily dubbed “squat-core”. Their sound infuses hardcore, metal, ska, classical, grindcore, folk and various other elements into what has become the gold standard of the modern crust/ punk genre. LOC’s latest full-length (first since 2004), Constructs of the State, is a jarring reminder of that fact. The 13 tracks are a sonic assault, laden with the fiercely overt political and socio-economic lyrical content the band are known for.
