Government Flu, Sterile Mind, Rut, and Drop In 

At 1-2-3-4 Go! Records.

Plenty of Americans associate the countries of the former Eastern Block with a Cold War-era dystopian fantasy. But, as a first-generation Russian immigrant, I’ve never appreciated my people being portrayed exclusively as movie villains in pop culture. However, I’m all for Eastern Europeans critiquing our own corrupt societies, so I was excited to learn Polish hardcore band Government Flu is playing at 1-2-3-4 Go! Records with local hardcore acts Sterile Mind, Rut, and Drop In. Like a lot of hardcore, Government Flu’s music is fast and jarring, and their new English-language album Vile Life conveys the band’s fury with plenty of feedback and frenetic guitar solos.
