ŠANOV 1: On the Shit: LP

2017 finds this Czech band celebrating thirty years of existence. Originally released in 1992, this is a reissue of their second LP. Dramatic and theatrical vocals pair with driving, somewhat straight-forward punk riffs. Pretty bizarre at times, like a revved up Toy Dolls influenced by early U.S. hardcore with some Jello-isms thrown in for good measure. Not sure how many times this will get thrown on the turntable, but its history is undeniable. If you’re interested in Czech punk/hardcore, and you haven’t heard this record: check it out. –Daryl (PHR, [email protected])
