"The Spits" (Dirtnap; 2003)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Homemade costumes, cheesy keyboard overlays, and Misfits-esque barrages are just some of the many tricks up the sleeves of this trio known as The Spits. And, man, do they have an arsenal. 

Imagine The Ramones, Devo, The Misfits, and the neighbor kid's band jamming out in a frenetic, robotic, and always subhuman way, and you've got the essence of this nine-track punk rawk funfest, complete with singalong choruses like the one found in "Nuclear Bomb" and driving riffs that will make the floor shake like it's 1979 on tracks like "Don't Shoot."

Injecting some of the unpredictability and silliness that punk rock has lacked lately, The Spits are a whole lot of fun, and if nothing else, a great escape.

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.
