SORE SUBJECTS: Self-titled: 7" EP

Jul 19, 2011

Female-fronted pinhead punk that’s greatest strength is its cerebral-ality, ultimately manifesting itself to the lazy reviewer as a cross between Head and the Welders. Songs about drinking Schlitz® and getting your hair cut like Dee Dee Ramone, served up in a style that is not critically handicapped by undue musicianship. Messed me up so gloriously I went out and got my hair cut like a can of Schlitz® and drank a 24 oz. can of Dee Dee Ramone. Word. BEST SONG: “Tall Boys” BEST SONG TITLE: “Gimme A Dee Dee” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: I refuse to deem any sub-24-ounce can of Schlitz® a “Tall Boy,” as, in the 70’s, the original Schlitz® “Tall Boy” cans were, indeed, 24 ounces.
