GIRTH CONTROL: Shorter Faster Dumber: 7”

Jan 31, 2018

Cramming fourteen tracks onto a 7” single means that only one song manages to break the sixty second mark on this release from Girth Control, a band featuring members of The Slaughterhouse Chorus from Albany, N.Y. These short, sharp blasts remind me of very early Descendents with occasional bursts of ska thrown into the mix. It all works really well and the brevity of the songs means that it’s impossible for any one of them to overstay its welcome. This is exceptionally good fun and a well-titled release. –Rich Cocksedge (Built 4 BBQ,, [email protected])
