Outlaw Order : Legalize Crime EP
From the label that brought you Dave Grohl's Probot: The sound of the Real Dirty South...
Wait, is that the sound of 75 per cent of NME readers turning the page? Anyhoooo… New Orleans' heroin punks Outlaw Order used to be in a horrible sludge-heroin mess called Eyehategod who split up when the guitarist got bitten by a dog and the drummer went to prison for stealing his best friend's passport and trying to enter Bangkok to buy a wife stuffed with heroin. The best song on here is called 'By Product Of A Wrecked Society' and it makes you want to go out and get so trashed that you end up having to borrow money from a homeless guy to get home.
