SHIRKS, THE: “D.C Is Doomed / Long Time” b/w “China” : 7”

The Shirks are a good band who excel at speeding up standard rock’n’roll riffs. D.C. Is Doomed is the highlight of the band so far; a catchy rocker filling a hole in the very punk scene for which they raise a gripe. All three songs are first-class for fans of fast-paced ‘70s punk, particularly those with a penchant for the Australians.
