SHOP FRONTS: Don’t Quit b/w Frustration & Just Don’t Know: 7″

A-side reminds me of the Deadly Weapons: A bunch of people pointlessly attempting to play at speeds beyond their capabilities to achieve. The two songs on the B-side are cooler, and, curiously, either song on the B-side is longer than the one song on the A-side. I’m gonna give this band a Mulligan for this record, and suggest that the next time they commit tracks to 7” vinyl, they do so with a clearer idea of what constitutes a potentially viable A-side, because “Don’t Quit” is not the correct answer. That will be all. BEST SONG: “Frustration” BEST SONG TITLE: “Frustration,” i guess. FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: This record features esteemed NYC promoter Tom from Dot Dash on drums, so i probably should have given it a better review.
