WHOOPI STICKS: We Are Spunk: CD

This is a three-song disc by a band from the Boston area. The sound is shouty, kind of angular, driving, post-punk. Not something I usually go for, but they are as good at it, as are most who play this style. The second song, “I Don’t Wanna Be a Person,” sounds like X-Ray Spex (in addition to being a song title that band might have had). Last song has kind of a Black Randy feel to it, and that is a pretty good reference point as well. –Mike Frame (Self-released, whoopisticks.bandcamp.com)
