Hot Water Music/The Casket Lottery

Colors, Words, and Dreams


Release Date: 2002
Format: 7-inch

Price: $4.00

Hot Water Music and The Casket Lottery come together on Colors, Words and Dreams to pay tribute to the criminally overlooked Government Issue, one of '80's hardcore's oft-forgotten Washington, DC forefathers. The Casket Lottery begin the tribute with their take on Government Issue's "For Ever," offering an up-tempo and aggressive interpretation, complete with frayed guitar leads, backups and melodic yet rough vocals; a harder, straightforward slant that suits The Casket Lottery well. Hot Water Music gets dirtier and more direct with their take on Government Issue's "Jaded Eyes." Hot Water Music convey pure hardcore punk ethos, and the competent yet sloppy playing, faux vocal accent and the simple yet effective chorus of "Jaded Eyes" plays to their, and Government Issue's, strengths. Colors, Words and Dreams is a fitting tribute from two of today's finest.
