CITIZEN FISH / LEFTOVER CRACK: Deadline: CD

If you are a Subhumans fan, how can you not like Citizen Fish?! Even though my preference is Culture Shock, they are all inter-connected bands. This is an interesting split. Citizen Fish absolutely dominates their half of the split. The familiarity makes me instantly feel comfortable of what I’m hearing. Even though lately I have a real hard time listening to ska, they are in the class of being able to do it right. The originals they perform on this release only add more to the already great catalog of material that they have created through the years. A Choking Victim and Leftover Crack cover add to their contribution. Leftover Crack I know are a very popular band, but I really never knew what the appeal was. Something about the vocals bugs me, and my attention span becomes nil. I guess I’m a hater.
