BITTER FRUIT: It Gets Worse: CD

Everything about this—from the artwork to their sound—screams psychedelic punk rock. The vocals and instruments sound drenched in effects. The vocals remind me of Nick Blinko (Rudimentary Peni) if he was singing over Christian Death songs. Rather than a bunch of carefully written, poetic lyrics, there’s a discomfort and angst here. It Gets Worse was recorded at the Ouija Cub in San Francisco. I’m picturing a lot of folks who look like rejects from a Tim Burton film in the audience. These guys sound really tight as a band, which makes for a good live record.
