FIST CITY / PISSTEST: Split: 7”

Either each side of this record plays at a different speed or I’m confused and listening to one of these bands at the wrong speed, so take this review with a grain of salt. Fist City features herky jerky vocals over waverunner riffs and cascading fuzz. They cover Devo’s “Endless Bummer” with respect, but not a whole lot of inventiveness. Pisstest is jangly and irritating garage punk that thinks it’s funny, but it isn’t really. They have a song called “Necrophilia (It’s Halal).” That should give you a hint about their cleverness.
