Blood-boilingly intense punks, The Fitz of Depression came courtesy of the early-90s Olympia, WA breeding ground. Although they received some local notoriety at the time, including an honorable mention from Kurt Cobain, the band disappeared from everyone's collective radar by the middle of the decade, and haven't been heard since. The Awakening showcases the Fitz at their rip-roaring best, blasting through three songs in nearly as many minutes, a la Motorhead cum Zeke. A couple of albums on K Records followed this single, but they failed to capture the breakneck vigor and urgency that the Fitz so effectively displayed here. Bitchin'.
