What's in a Name

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Some aging hardcore fans were stirred by the idea of a reunion album by Seattle's the Fartz, the city's earliest hardcore band of note. The reunion, naturally, doesn't include drummer Duff "Rose" McKagan, later much better-known as the rhythm guitarist in Guns N' Roses. However, What's in a Name is a disappointment on most levels. Nearly all of the 15 tracks everything except covers of Black Sabbath's "Children of the Grave" and Motörhead's "Iron Fist" are old Fartz songs available in their original versions on the compilation Because This Fuckin' World Still Stinks, and there's nothing particularly different about these new versions except that Jack Endino's production ...
