SPIT PINK: Night of the Lizard: LP

Yikes! There’s nothing gutsy about Spit Pink’s brand of “punk.” Night of the Lizard is silly and sarcastic at best, and at worst it’s jockish and downright offensive. Here’s a smidgen of “Jenny & Jim:” “Oh that girl is a guy / you fell in love with her / and you don’t know why / …now you’re wearing your high heels and a sequin dress / you always thought being gay was sick / and now her pubes tickle your chin while you suck her dick.” Although Spit Pink’s sound is a throwback to ‘70s-era Stooges, they didn’t need to appropriate outdated meatheadedness as well. –Sean Arenas (Wanda, mailorder.wandarecords.de)
