Just in time for the most capitalistic of all holidays, The Jasons and Black Russians bring us a split full of bad tidings and fear. The tension between the two factions intensified towards the release date, with each side demanding allegiance. I feel like Hasselhoff is standing on a wall somewhere, just waiting to herald the huddled masses with whatever shite he sings. I don’t know. I was 6.
The 7” has four songs, the CD has two bonus songs, each limited to 500.
Label: Mom’s Basement Records
Release Date: 11/20/2020
A-Side / The Jasons
Kill a Commie for Mommy
A Blaze in the Soviet Sky
Kill a Commie for Mommy: filtered back up vocals and interesting guitar patterns.
Red Dawnna: a distorted sample of Ritchie Valens’ “Oh Donna” explodes into girl-problem vocals. The instantly recognizable bass line directly transported me to the 90’s with memories of MxPx’s own cover of “Oh Donna”. I want to go buy some JNCOs.
A Blaze in the Soviet Sky: scathing, sneering delivery, graphic lyrics and a ferocious bass line that lingers in your head like a manifesto.

B-Side / Black Russians
Kill the Jasons
Red Blooded Soviet Punk Rock
Kill the Jasons: cheery song about killing mongoloids.
Invasion USA: “your freedom don’t mean shit” feels eerily appropriate given the current pandemic situation we are collectively experiencing.
Red Blooded Soviet Punk Rock: absolutely dirty guitar solo over the bridge, this is a skippy love ballad.
Whether you’re into Ramones-inspired Horror Pop Punk, talking shit, or hockey, here’s a fun and fast addition to your pop-punk collection. Find the split on Mom’s Basement Webstore.
