BILL SKINS FIFTH WILL PUNCH YOU RIGHT IN THE FACE / ABSENT MINDS / DESTROY NATE : Split: 7”

Jan 19, 2012

A four-way split 7” by a quartet of Portland bands. Besides delivering a name that is entirely too long, Bill Skins Fifth Will Punch You Right In the Face brings forth a pleasant and fun ‘60s-sounding keyboard-driven number with no lyrics other than skateboard and other less comprehensible yelling. Absent Minds’ song at the end of the first side, “Homeless,” starts off with a sorta hardcore bass line, but moves into unexceptional crusty melodic punk. The leadoff tune on the B-side by Destroy Nate Allen is raggedy folk punk with just male and female vocals backed by acoustic guitar that gets old quick even though it’s a fairly brief number. They saved the best for last with a rather fine song by Danger Death Ray. The wonderfully titled, “Zombies Even Eat My Nightmares” is also sort of in a folk punk vein, this time backed up by a full band as well as a prominence of doo-wop influences.
