Three bands (two songs each) from the Land of the Rising Sun again served up by the illustrious Snuffy Smiles. Your Pest Band is this generation’s Teengenerate. Fast, blown out, incomprehensible, fantastic. Dog Hotel brings the jangle with a Beatles’ beat behind drunk Replacements tunes and an almost Dead Milkmen delivery. But Car10 is the gem and the lyrics to “Get Drunk” alone are worth hunting down the 7”. Both Car10 songs strike a Blotto cord. We need more Blotto in our lives, ergo, more Car10.
