PUFF: Identitatsverlust: 7”

Sep 23, 2014

One thing I love about punk is anytime I think I’m tired of something, a band comes along and does it well. This 7” contains three cuts of driving, poorly recorded synth-punk. The songs are in German, which adds mystique to the art-fascist, Screamers-like sound. I hate to bring an obvious reference point like The Screamers in, but Puff hit the era dead on. Lots of discordant hollering and eerie sound effects. “Duss Ich-Routine” has an analogue hiss that sounds good with the car windows down. All three songs move. It’s a real keeper for fans of The Screamers, Suicide, or The Spits. It’s a real nice one. Sounds good loud.
