BATHTUB SHITTER: Lifetime Shitlist: CD

A Japanese grind band with some of the worst lyrics I’ve ever read. Granted, some of it may be due to a desire to sing in English being hamstrung by a rudimentary grasp of the language, but that doesn’t really explain away verses like “Countless tributaries of a river/ Where is it going?/ I drink and think about it/ But really need a snack/ And my blood vessel wants beer.” Musically it ain’t too terrible, and the cookie monster/high-pitched squeal dual vocal interplay is funny as hell, but I really shouldn’t have looked at the lyric sheet first.
