Suspicious Beasts: Used to Be Beautiful 12"
Debut LP from this Japanese band featuring members of Snuffy Smiles favorites like Three Minute Movie, Blotto, and the Urchin. While not quite as Leatherface-influenced as the Urchin, this is some great, '77-influenced punk with a little bit of twang. Not in a Black Lips kind of vein, really, but more in a Stiff Records, pub rockin' kind of style. Great stuff full of solid, catchy songs.
