VACATION: The Do Shit Wax: 10”

Oct 28, 2015

Vacation’s first release The Do Shit Tape, remastered and finally released on vinyl. Leads are wound tight and are ready to lift the cacaphonic chorus through the crowd. “Ratrick’s Day 2K9” won’t stop reminding me of Sexy’s “Pico de Gallo” and that’s a high, high compliment. More compact and maybe more “punk” than Vacation’s subsequent and slightly more expansive pop-meets-psyche full lengths, this earlier release sits comfortably up there with the best releases from Diarrhea Planet and Japanther. I think I just created the ultimate dream show bill for someone’s Ohio basement.
