YOUR PEST BAND / THE MISCASTS: Split: 7”

How is it that Japanese bands are able to take the refuse of American punk rock and turn into something better than the first iteration? Your Pest Band should move to Oakland and perform as Rancid until someone stops them. I love the imagination/foresight of whoever thought it was a good idea to include the lyrics ‘cause “Dead men cross their arms with serious faces/I know their true colors” is a great, great line in any language. The Miscasts sound like a Florida band only drunker, yet their lyrics make more sense. Huh.
