ALIEN TV / THE JIM TABLOWSKI EXPERIENCE: Split: LP

Plenty of junk in this punk trunk! Alien TV is four cats arguing with each other which direction to take the band—Briefs? Scared Of Chaka? Voidoids?—not realizing they’re all right and they’re all moving in the same direction. Snotty, fast SoCal punk surfing the gutters of New York. But from Dortmund, Germany. TJTE spits out ten songs, none reaching the two minute mark, with a sound—and I don’t use these comparisons lightly—between Sexy and Elmer. Add one of the oddest set of lyrics and song titles and we may just have some sort of German genius punk release.
