Who doesn’t appreciate an album name written in what can only be presumed as shit smeared on the front cover minus the “s”? Hitstains is a singles comp of NY punk band LiveFastDie from 2005-2008, before calling it quits in 2009, with various turds and tidbit goody releases that they prolifically spewed out within such a short time span. If you’re not familiar with LiveFastDie, it’s straight-up, blown-out garage rock; think an American Teengenerate. Back cover has a nice little write up on the chronology of this twenty-one song LP, giving us a clue on all the shit-tacular happenings surrounding their short-lived escapades. LiveFastDie, I mean, yeah, they lived up to their name; it’s the shit.
