SHUTINS, THE: Haunted by Hangovers: CD

Jul 21, 2009

Sounds like a demo by a third-tier, mid-'80s punk band who’ve tired of playing the same fifty-two thrash songs every night and want to be acknowledged as “real” musicians but can’t quite come up with tunes good enough to get them noticed by a major label. The singer sounds like he had a tummy ache during the course of recording this epic disc. Nice pictures of people vomiting to round out the package. I can empathize with their need to expel lunch, ’cause I’m feelin’ pretty much the same way right about now.
