LOUSY BREAK: Self-titled: 7”

It’s so good to see that Headache Records is still around. And this is a standard, if not perfect, Headache release: straight-ahead, low-fi punk injected with doses of humor and obnoxiousness. How much more punk can you get with lines like, “I like cat in my Chinese food”? Makes me laugh, might make some gag, and it’s written into a good musical hook. Overall, this isn’t an earth-shattering record, but it rocks purty good. Oh, forgot—it’s a picture disc.
