Originally formed by members of The Slaughterhouse Chorus to play some Less Than Jake covers, Girth Control eventually evolved into a band with its own material. Rather than just follow in the tracks of the famous Floridians, the songs take a more Operation Ivy/Suicide Machines path, as highlighted by this recording of a show in the summer of 2015. What is clear from the performance is that the band is having a shitload of fun and that factor is the key for me, as I find myself smiling from start to finish. Definitely a band I’d like to see live.
