BLOTTO: Bang Up Your Chair: 7"

Mar 22, 2007

This is an uncharacteristically DIY-looking release from Snuffy Smile. The front and back covers are photocopied and glued onto an old Registrators seven-inch sleeve. It actually looks really cool. The four songs that come with this package, though, are the high quality that I’ve come to expect from Snuffy Smile. Imagine a Japanese version of the Replacements covering Clash songs, and you’re in the ballpark. A lot of hooks and a lot of tempo changes. Folky parts and hardcore parts all wrapped around a tight melody. To top it all off, one of the guitarist/singers shares a name with my favorite Japanese author: Murakami. Great stuff.
