HUNCHBACK / THE TRASHIES: Together at Last: Split 7″

The Trashies are a cool band I’ve been getting into lately—trashy rock descending from the Mummies and Supercharger vibe—a little bit cleaner but still a messed-up vital whack job sound. A quickie song, “Mongo Retardo” is awesome, and their cover of Supercharger’s “Soup Prize Package” is great too. This is the first time I’ve heard Hunchback and it’s a solid combo with the Trashies: plucky, dirty excitement with “Sixteen Tons” and a speedy cover of the Dead Kennedys’ “Too Drunk to Fuck.” A freaking fun 7”. And on 33 rpm, passing that value on to you. Good ol’ drinking, rooting tooting fun.
