DISCO LEPERS / KERMIT’S FINGER: Split: 7” EP

Mar 17, 2008

Disco Lepers: Sounds like it was mixed in a shoebox by someone with tinnitus, but their short, spazzy punk—which reminds me of a thrashy, inept version of the S’Nots—ain’t too painful. Kermit’s Finger: Jeez, haven’t heard from these guys in ages. Still peddlin’ the same snotty hardcore keen on pointing out life’s hypocrisies, I see, which is just fine by me. Best tune here, hands down, is “Take Your Shot,” which illustrates how much things have changed in the intervening years between Suicidal Tendencies’ “I Shot the Devil” and the post-9/11 world we find ourselves in by commenting in the second verse about what could be the government’s reaction to what they’re singing in the first verse.
