Album Notes
D.C. protest punk vets BLOWBACK are back with their fourth release, Greed Runs The Clock. Recorded with Don Zientara (Fugazi, Bad Brains) behind the boards and mixed by Don Fury (Quicksand, Agnostic Front), the first collaboration of The Dons meshes DC and NYC hardcore style in a hard hitting, bile-spitting four song set that skewers corporate greed and environmental destruction. Thrashy riffs, hyper beats and full throttle dueling vocals.

Great Review on PunkNews.Org
Hey everyone - here's a great review for Greed Runs the Clock!
""The EP solidly plants one foot in the nation's capitol and the other foot in the nation's capitol of sleaze. …undeniable hardcore with its screamed/growled vocals, stomping drums and slashing strings…skittles and tilts like '80s D.C. hardcore ….. [but] adds a level of menace, energy and, frankly, fun, that makes the piece more exciting than run of the mill barking.

Blowback's combination of the various facets of a relatively narrow genre suggest that perhaps hardcore is wider than we think. The wrapping of the different attributes together does create an interesting question: Is Blowback looking back or looking forward?"

Another great review on
And, another one from Thrashhead!
"The album superbly navigates an ocean of influences to present to you a steaming hot platter of no bulls*** punk rock spiced heavily with some red hot socio-political commentary which will have your a** burning for a week.

You take "Cassandra's Lament" for example and you got the groove of NYC Hardcore yet, the spoken word against blind consumerism reminds me of the early bay punx...while, at the same time, the raging screams of "the smokestacks reaching into the sky" and the pounding drum intro points me towards the seemingly conflicting directions of the more volatile anger of Amebix and Bad Brains (Right Brigade)!

Blowback has put out one of the strongest punk offerings I've heard this year, it's genre-less, it's just punk f***ing rock! "
