SPASTIC PANTHERS: Rock’n’roll Beasts: 7” EP

This 7” is eight songs full of blitzing, straight ahead punk. These guys play tight in the pocket with some great stand alone bass interludes, a la “Spastic Panther Anthem” and “The Ballad of Joey Ramone.” It reminds me of 7 Seconds, especially with Spastic Panther’s peep song lyrics in their song “Stand Strong.”
