Pissheads: raw punk RVA d-beat crust.

One of the many short lived bands from Richmond in the past decade, Pissheads played a bunch of shows, thrashed and trashed a few basements, recorded a demo, and then moved on either to NYC or on to other bands. I got to see Pissheads a few times and they were one of my favorites: deep vocals, punchy drums, heavy crunchy distortion, and solid, catchy, upbeat tempo. It’s not hard to picture the fists in the air and a raging circle pit in a space way to small for such mayhem.

RIP Fran.
