SHANKS, THE: Backstabber: 7”

May 30, 2014

Squealing, feedback-drenched guitars and howling, screeching vocals, this is exquisitely intense. The Shanks’ songs on this here 7” sound like some long-lost nugget of Northwestern garage punk: Wipers weirdness, dirtier and nastier than Mudhoney, faster and more ferocious than Murder City Devils. This is a ripper. Comes highly recommended.
