Shirks: S/T 12"
Debut 12" from this Baltimore band who represent quite a different sound than anything Grave Mistake has done before. To my ears, this has a very 90s garage/punk sound, reminding me of Rip Off Records-style bands (including, most notably, the Rip Offs themselves) as well as Japanese bands like Teengenerate and the Registrators. As with the best of those bands, the energy level here is absolutely through the roof, the production is pretty much piss-raw, and the hooks abound. Excellent stuff. Grave Mistake Records
