BATHTUB SHITTER

"Dancehall Grind" (Super Hit Jam Records; 2005)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Seriously, who would name their band Bathtub Shitter? You probably think I'm making this up.

I wish I was. But I'm not. In fact, Snidermann was so offended by this band's moniker and song titles (i.e., "Rest in Piss"), that he refused to review it and instead passed it back to me.

Yeah, thanks, Snidermann.

"Dancehall Grind" is thirteen tracks of chaotic grindcore whose lyrics are mostly scatological. You'd never guess that from the aforementioned song titles. Unless "Re-Shit," "Shit Drop" and "Stihs Latem" (read it backwards) are any clues.

Add to that mix a pair of outrageous vocalists (one of whom sounds like he's trying out for Cannibal Corpse and the other like he's a cross between Justin Hawkins of The Darkness and Devo's Boojie Boy) and you've got a CD that's almost as annoying as the proverbial nails on a chalkboard.

The best thing about this CD, of course, is that it isn't enhanced. I don't know if I could take a video from this band.

Bathtub Shitter: Daisuke Tanabe - guitar; Keisuke Sugiyama - drums; Masato Henmarer Morimoto - vocals; Yuki Kuroki - bass.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
