OUT WITH A BANG: I’m Against It EP: 7”

May 10, 2007

Stupid, snotty, thrash punk. And by describing it as “stupid,” I’m not trying to be insulting. I’m pretty sure that both Out With A Bang and their fans would agree that not only is this stupid, but it’s intentionally trying to be stupid. And past all the poorly drawn artwork, self-deprecation, and abrasive lyrics, there are in fact actual emotions and opinions being displayed on this record. Fuck, I think this is good but I’m probably too dumb to understand the societal commentary this band is trying to make. This is the reissue of the one-sided 12” Italian release. So it is possible to get stupider than this, but it’s gonna cost you in shipping (unless you live in Italy).
