BOTOX PARTY / ZHENIA GOLOV: Split: 7″

Let’s not beat around the bush… I love this 7”. It encapsulates the spirit releasing music this way should include. First, it has meaningful music. Zhenia Golov slams out some furious social political hardcore about TV and advertisements; the influences of the likes of Black Flag and Propahgandhi are apparent. Second, these two bands are different: Botox Party takes up the rough and tumble pop punk band on the split by offering three of the five tracks found here. Botox Party puts out guitar-heavy pop tunes backed up by a precise rhythm section. Lastly, this release has some individual quirkiness. The cover art for this vinyl is a Spy vs. Spy comic with Shania Golov vying against Botox Party. Did I mention I love this 7”. –N.L. Dewart
