PISSE / PERKY TITS: Split: 10”

Deliberately obnoxious and strange, this split between two crazy German bands vacillates between inspired and indecipherable. Both bands use keyboards, drum machines, and other devices that lend an experimental and/or jokey quality to what, at times, are quite aggressive, exciting songs. I kind of dig it, even if I don’t understand it. We’re not talking a language barrier as much as a musical one. I don’t think these groups are joke bands per se, but they’re definitely into messing with their listeners. Peculiar in the purest ways, it’s a humdinger of a record. –Art Ettinger (Phantom, phantom.tk)
