DIRTY MOUTH: Self-titled: Cassette

Awesome riot grrrl-inspired rock from Ohio. Shrill vocals, loads of feedback, and jumpy riffs. The music rocks off the rails, threatening to come unhinged at every turn. It’s a winning combination. This tape is so punk, it comes with a lyric sheet that is nearly unreadable. They didn’t sell out and get you a lyric sheet that’s not easy to read. Don’t Google the name and confuse them with a cover band from Massachusetts called Dirty Mouth. They do a cover of “God Save the Queen,” but the Ohio Dirty Mouth is much punker.
