HARDCORE-PUNK. With "slippy when wet", Pittsburgh's S.L.I.P. go after that rarest of white whales: the all-killer, no filler hardcore record. You can hear the lurching, deep-in-the-pocket, BLACK FLAG/BL'AST style rhythms that are at the core of the band's sound, but "slippy when wet" reveals that, much like the ADOLESCENTS or the ZERO BOYS. S.L.I.P. is pretty much just writing great pop songs and delivering them with the energy and power of hardcore-punk. S.L.I.P. has that ANNIHILATION TIME-esque way of using their phenomenal technical proficiency in the service of making music that is fun and energetic rather than dense and pretentious. "slippy when wet" is a record that won't leave your turntable for a very long time.
