Not very memorable and at times pretty annoying.

It's not terrible by any means, but you won't be missing much without it.

"Urban Fashion Punk" has some pretty obnoxious similarities to DK's rendition of "Viva Las Vegas". Not obnoxious in that it seems derivative (that doesn't bother me as much), it just sounds like they are REALLY trying to sound like that one song, or do some Weird Al-esque parody with a similar vibe.

"2000" ends with a cool, noisy locked groove, a record pressing trick I'm not too jaded to appreciate.

The 2 rating I gave it seems a bit harsh, but I just listened to this record again and can barely remember any of what I just heard... The rating I gave this 7" isn't so low because it flat-out sucks, it's just totally unremarkable to me.

It seems like they were trying really hard to cop DK's sound overall but could only manage a similar style without any of the political sting or clever, dark humor by way of social commentary that really made DK's great (not that they didn't make great -music- too).

The music could I guess be described as sort of poppy, geeky/teenagerish Hardcore... Might be good to hear if you're heavily into that style, especially if you enjoy Dead Kennedys worship. Kind of fun, but the singer is a little too "geeky" sounding for my tastes.
