Brand new 7" from 'Bay Area Punks, Violence Creeps, after an 12" on Total Punk, a recent LP and a bunch of demos, here we have four songs, alternate version of 'Sex Dwarf off the Total Punk 12", a couple of songs that appeared on the demo tapes and a brand new song. Violence Creeps are raw, destructive, fucked off and in your face. Reminding me in parts, Flipper and Black Flag but WAY angrier. This is the sound of your summer on fire. 

Our take: Brand new 4-songer from this San Francisco-area band who have been a Sorry State favorite for a while now. You get four songs here, three of which you may already know, including an alternate version of their cover of Soft Cell’s “Sex Dwarf,” which originally appeared on their 12” EP on Total Punk (which, IMHO at least, remains THEE Violence Creeps record to get). While Ease the Seed Bag lacks the unity of sound and vision that some of Violence Creeps’ other releases have had, what it lacks in unity it makes up for with the strength of the songs themselves, as this EP collects some of the band’s most memorable moments. Too musical to be no wave but too musically confrontational to really be called straightforward punk, Violence Creeps have the same kind of stance as bands like Flipper, No Trend, and Public Image Ltd., and like those bands at their very best Violence Creeps have a way of wrenching jagged but memorable melodies out of the chaos. Keeping up with this prolific band’s bulging discography can be tough, but the rewards make it well worth it.
