PUPPY AND THE HAND JOBS: I Eat Abortions: 7”

Sloppy garage pop with the comedy sensibility of The Dwarves. Doubt that it’s an influence, but the opening track “I Eat Abortions” (which by design will have you singing the chorus before the song is over) reminds me a good deal of Personal And The Pizzas. Some of their songs feel eternal, as if they’ve been floating in the space of garage rock since its inception in the 1960s. “Trash Rock’n’Roll” in particular feels like it’s a long lost garage party anthem for kids who are bad at throwing parties. I highly recommend this album if you are a kid who is bad at throwing parties, which I assume most of are deep down. –Bryan Static (Black Gladiator / Slovenly)
