Maximum Rock n Roll days circa the mid-90s. I have no significant background info to offer on Pivot, other than the correspondence address on the inner sleeve which points to Vacaville, CA, a town in between San Francisco and Sacramento. Post-hardcore punk was their speciality, the stripe that hadn't intermingled with emo, at least not on these four tracks. Some faint socio/political themes crop up intermittently, but truthfully, you won't feel a thing. The commencing "Drain" churns out a sturdy, Helmet-like grind. Gots to love those taught, lockstep riffs. Pivoting to side two (sorry, couldn't resist), the Oscillator ep hits a more tuneful, not to mention speedier stride on "Pawn to Shell" and "She." Enjoy (or not).
