VIRGIN WHORES, THE: Whiskey Girl: 7”

It’s not dopey to like dopey punk. Why do fans of fashion punk always come back for more? My answer is because dopey bands are hilarious and are generally in on the joke. Minnesota’s Virgin Whores are no exception and their exposed, non-high concept blasts of young energy are a refreshing anecdote to the wannabe artsy bullshit that so many bands of today strive for. The record’s sides are labeled with one cherry and two cherries as opposed to “A” and “B.” If you roll your eyes at that brilliance, skip this band and have fun outgrowing fun. The rest of us will continue having a blast.
