WORKIN’ STIFFS, THE: My Ghetto: 7″

Yeah, the Workin’ Stiffs are, in essence, a street punk band, but they’ve consistently overcome every pitfall of that microgenre. Slashing, spastic guitars, almost like the Baseball Furies. A relentless drummer who never relies on the bap-bap-bap monotony of lesser bands. No fake Cockney Accents and no “Time to polish our boots, brothers!” lyrical follies. One of the few great, non-clichéd street punk bands of the past decade.
