BLACK WIDOWS / THE 99ERS: Split: 7”

Sep 26, 2019

Black Widows are my kind of surf band. They inject their songs full of punk snarl, demanding attention, refusing to let their tunes fade into background noise like so many other surf bands seem content to do. “Mummy Mama Boogie” is not only an absolute jam, lyrically it puts a perfect feminist twist on the mummy legend. The 99ers play pop punk. “Girl Eyes” is about the difficulty that men sometimes seem to have finding things in their own homes, instead relying on the eyes of the women in their lives. “Girl eyes find and Boy’s eyes are surprised.” Such a great concept for a song, boosted further by catchy, bouncy music. –Emma Alice Johnson (Man Della / Jerkoff / Ratgirl)
