SPREAD ‘EM: Pizza Crisis: EP

Oct 16, 2009

Wow, a humor band that actually plays decent music. Kind of a rarity. Spread ‘Em crank out tuneful hardcore punk that has some Oi! elements here and there. They have a song on here called “Jamie Lee Curtis Fingerbang” so you know you’re in store for some lowbrow stuff, but funny, just the same. Which is certainly better than any number of “whacky thrash” bands that sing about whatever whackass, or uh “whacky thrash” bands sing about. The singer, Brandon, has a great voice. Makes me wonder what he’d be like in a ‘serious’ hardcore band. Comes on clear vinyl. Why they didn’t press it on cheese yellow vinyl is a mystery.
