DERKS, THE: Slack Jawed Hussies: 7″

Four mid-tempo punk rock songs with a somewhat standard sound to them, although I really, really, really like the last song, “Truck,” which had a bit of a country feel to it musically and lyrically. The other three songs are good, but not holy-shit-you’ve-got-to-hear-this-record-good. Overall, the record rocks, but it a very familiar way—kind of like the Zero Boys played at a slightly slower tempo.
