EMPTY HEADS: Get Real Dumb: 7”

This came with absolutely no information on the band except that it’s limited to three hundred copies. The A side of this record is dirty, poppy, catchy garage punk. The Mean Jeans or Goner Records bands spring to mind immediately. The B side, “Josie” side sells it for me, though. The sound is more aggressive but still pop sensible. It has a raw vibe. The drums and overall tone remind me a lot of an old Chiswick Records LP that probably shouldn’t be named.
