BATTLESHIP: Self-titled: 12"EP

Mar 22, 2007

This is a pretty noisy record, but something underneath the noise sounded kinda familiar. I listened and listened, and then it hit me: Fugazi. I doubt that anyone involved with this record is going to take that as a compliment, but dude, they sound like early Fugazi. Not in an artsy way like so many other bands that sound like Fugazi, but structurally, the two bands are somewhat similar, the vocalist sounds a bit like Guy but with more force. And like I said, it’s noisy, so they kinda reminded me of the Blacks (Tucson, not Sweden) at the same time. Did I mention that it sounds like Fugazi? I like Fugazi and I like this record.
