LIQUOR STORE: Yeah Buddy: LP

It took me a while before I finally broke down and bought this record. I wanted to get it to show some New Jersey pride, but every place I’ve seen it it’s been so goddamn expensive! And is a double LP necessary? Everything about this record is over-the-top, egotistical, a giant “fuck you” to the world… and it’s fucking glorious. Combine KBD-type punk, lo-fi garage, The Dictators, and The Angry Samoans and you have Liquor Store. Vocals so snotty it gives the singers of either The Crucifucks or Vindictives a run for their respective money. Dripping with hubris but totally self aware. Post-whatever era we’re in now. PC clowns, stay away.
