If you are looking for lo-fi screamy hardcore with a lot of noodley bits like Polina, Matsuri and Tunes For Bears To Dance To you need to check out the Canadian screamo band CRIPPLED CHILDREN. Alas, we are all very late to the party as they released their only album in 2010 and a single song on a 2011 cassette comp that I have yet to unearth.

The 'PP PP EP PP' album is two things simultaneously, fucking awesome and poorly recorded. Over the five tracks we are blessed with two unreal songs amidst some good and mediocre tunes.
"Peter Pan Has a Mortgage" is bouncy as fuck probably takes the cake as the best song by CRIPPLED CHILDREN. The beginning opens with a playful Level Plane-esque rock/screamo vibe and right before the one-minute mark things get really fucking danceable until about 2:30 when we are treated to a funky as shit bass riff that sounds like something from my much beloved Serotonin. The song continues to swirl with screams and overall has a strong resemblance to Polina"2MUCHMAN4SUPERSTORE" has an unreal chorded bass line from the onset and again at 57 seconds that'll bore the verses into your skull, it's so goddamn catchy. "Tuesdays With Tuesday Guy" sounds like the pre-cursor to my boys in Terry Green with its playful and volatile emo/hardcore hybrid.

There ya go. Sick, obscure screamo.
