A kind of punky indie sound on this three track demo. There are some catchy ideas here, neat hooks especially on track two. Guitar playing is good but the drums need some more work, that eight in a bar ride cymbal all the way through is something akin to Chinese water torture. Vocals can also become a little monotonous, he should try writing songs higher up in his range. The title of the tape is, well, quite honestly, asking for trouble, especially from reviewers, but I won't stoop so low. The bass intro on track two is particularly nice and shows hidden depths of soulfulness in a trashy, energetic band. Come up with some stronger melodies and better production and you could be onto a winner.
