SPITTING IMAGE: Love on a Terror: 7”

I’ll start off with my only criticism of this record, the artwork. I don’t get it. But do not let the cover fool you. Imagine if Nation Of Ulysses were from the desert and you’ll have an idea about Spitting Image’s sound. They have a very Northwestern post-punk sound mixed with spacey desert rock on this record. These Reno boys have been playing for a while now and getting better and better by the release. “Love on a Terror”is a mid-paced, post-punk song with a lot of angst that crawls to a near six-minute end. “We Begin” is a bit more intense and spacey sounding. I saw these guys play last year and was super impressed by their live intensity. Spitting Image is doing punk rock right and I, for one, can’t wait for the full length. Buy this record.
