One of the most celebrated garage punk bands since the early days of The Spits is back with an insane LP full of their Ramones-meets-outlaw-grit trademark sound. The back cover features a hilarious map of Mississippi, which has it bordering Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, and Pakistan. The Mississippi map also designates sections of the state with various labels such as “Gays Burned at the Stake” and “Dirt for Dinner.” This sort of seedy garage punk is best enjoyed by fans of rough groups like Spider Babies, but it’s catchy enough that a wide range of listeners will dig it. It’s definitely the garage highlight of the year so far, so run and pick it up now.
