Sleeper Horse is up first on this split 7”. You might remember the troublesome Blackout Pact, whose singer, Mike Herrera (not to be confused with the MxPx frontman) has a co-vocalist role here. Sleeper Horse is way less rambunctious than the Blackout Pact; I mean, it’s basically punk rock, but Sleeper Horse are somewhat jangly and much more restrained. It vaguely resembles Fugazi (aside from the earnest singing in “For Your Health”), in part because of the vocal interplay and in part because “Business Is a Gamble” has an oddly danceable strut about it (à la Q and Not U, maybe? Eh, probably a stretch.). It’s sort of weird stuff and way harder to pin down TBP. Except for the Thin Lizzy cover, “Jail Break,” and its thick bass dirges.
