   I'm a bit late on this band, but then again I've never really known that much about Italian hardcore. Coming from Venice, Slander have joined up with Punkalovich favourites Kids Insane to make a split 12" which is due for release on 11th May through Tangled Talk Records.
    While Kids Insane are keeping their tracks a little bit under wraps besides showcasing them at shows (what I heard sounds pretty damn groovy), Slander have released a video for the track Give All and it's mental! If you ever liked playing old skool shoot 'em up, beat 'em up and/or platform games then you would appreciate this video. We see the band immersed in a virtual world, battling their way through to eventually prove that weed is the solution to all problems. We also see the band members playing in dustbins and getting pelted with rubbish bags. Two very different elements but both fun to watch. The track itself is no holds barred hardcore punk, with some elements that take me back to listening to London bands from the Rucktion scene.
