WANKYS, THE: Self-titled: EP

More noise punk from this prolific outfit. Musically and lyrically, they’re straight ahead and to the point. Four songs of resistance, the surveillance state, and having integrity with flanged-out, distorted guitars, no frills drums and bass, and a singer who sounds like a Muppet on crank. Of all the noisecore bands in recent years, The Wankys have stood out over most. The fact that they are still at it speaks volumes. –Matt Average (SPHC, sphc.bigcartel.com)
