SOCIALS, THE: The Beast Bites: 7”EP

Pretty cool debut release by female-fronted The Socials. Recorded and released by Andy Slob, who was affiliated with a lot of Junk Records bands I used to listen to growing up (Slobs, Dipshits, Candy Snatchers). So, obvious points scored for that. Ever-so-slightly new wave tinged ‘80s punk, not far removed from something similar to The Slits or Untamed Youth. Well, with a bit more fuzz, for sure. “Hot Tips” being the stand out on here, for sure. Decent first record, from a cool, new band.
