MURDERS, THE: Gone and Forgotten: CD

Male and female gutter punk vocals, a la Cause. Poppy, sloppy adolescent punk about smoking, drinking, girls and… that’s about it, sung with a raw scream and dreamy off-tune tones. Catchy and fun like a summer day, but just as forgettable. “Gloria” and “Perfect Drinking Problem” are the best and most relatable tunes with fairly clever lyrics. Reminds me of Sweet Baby James (the band, not the song). I gave up looking for them online after my search kept turning up a new wave duo from Idaho. The label site was useless as well.
