SALTEENS, THE: Whiskey & Records: 7”

May 20, 2014

Well, this just fucking rules! Five tracks recorded in the mid ‘90s from Minneapolis, MN’s The Salteens. This band features members that went on to be in bands such as The Soviettes, Cleveland Bound Death Sentence, and The Gateway District. This is a pop punk time bomb that’s taken twenty years to detonate. A blinding explosion of bouncing, wild-eyed energy via youthful punk being fueled by the Twin Cities basement circuit. How have we survived this long without this 7”? No joke, this is mandatory listening for anyone who likes the bands mentioned above, Dillinger Four, Dear Landlord, or newer bands like Lipstick Homicide.
