In Review: ILL GLOBO – PROMOTED TO GLORY CS (UNWOUND RECORDS, 2019)

Words: James Frostick

Got four-and-a-half minutes to spare? That’s all you’ll need to rip through the blistering new tape from unhinged and harefooted punks Ill Globo. Four tracks of heart-rate accelerant, the newly released Promoted To Glory tape gives us just enough to get hooked, but snatches the high away as quick as it came – thus is the bracing nature of Ill Globo’s potent style.
