BOTTLES AND SKULLS/400 BLOWS: Split 7” EP

Bottles: Two catchy mid-tempo punk tunes. “Party Crasher” is the better of the two, with a hypnotic riff and ranty lyrics. 400 Blows: “The Gods are Laughing at Us” had me envisioning a no-wave band covering SOD. The other song is more disjointed and noisy, which is a plus. Good racket from both bands. White vinyl, you collector whores.
