Catatonic Youth: Piss Scene 7"
Reissue of the piss-rare single by this one-man punk project. To compare this to similar punk project bands like Jay Reatard's solo stuff and the other Total Control is both a compliment and a disservice... it's just as good as those other two (and has garnered the appropriate hype in certain circles), but the songwriting is a lot more expansive, incorporating Wipers-esque drone, Kinks-y melodies and pulsing electronic pounding a la the Spits into something really unique-sounding. If you like the aforementioned bands you'll love this, no questions... great songs, brilliantly raw production, and gorgeous packaging. Essential listening. Perennial Records
