From Total Punk: Cleveland's Perverts Again present the first LP, featuring 'their signature, warbled, repetitive punk incantations.  Plodding bass and drums, slow macho riffs, and gang chants all moved forward by the monotone delivery of the [lead vocals]. Weird, catchy, and sarcastic.'

Our take: I'd been wondering for a while how connected the band Cruelster is to the more well-known Cleveland scene, and I guess that this LP answers that question given that it says, "From the kids who brought you Cruelster" on the cover and it's out on Paul from Inmates' Non Commercial Records label. While Cruelster themselves remind me of the nihilistic hardcore bands that Cleveland is well-known for, Perverts Again have a vibe I'd associate more with bands like the Darvocets... looser, for sure, more sarcastic than angry, and more connected to the slightly deranged KBD sound, or perhaps even to early punk novelty records. This kind of music is definitely an acquired taste... on first listen it can sound really half-assed and goofy, but if you like the kind of punk plied by famous Cleveland projects like Folded Shirt, Darvocets, and Homostupids this LP definitely deserves a place in that decidedly unique canon.
