OX Fanzine said:

Als Folge der Tatsache, dass die reine Masse an Plattenlabels und Bands umgekehrt exponentiell zu ihrer Klasse längst ins Unüberschaubare gestiegen ist und jede kreative Verwerfung demzufolge als unabdingbare Notwendigkeit zum Überleben verkauft werden muss, gibt es kaum noch Labels, deren Veröffentlichungen dies tatsächlich sind, die wirklich herausragen aus der Masse, die man getreu der altbackenen Phrasierung also praktisch blind kaufen kann. Taken By Surprise allerdings ist ein solches Label, denn statt allwöchentlich den nächsten Schwung Plastikmüll auf den Markt zu spülen, hat man ein Auge für die wirklich großartigen Bands, für die MANDATES, CHEMICALS, THE CRY, NIGHT BIRDS, RED DONS oder eben PISS TEST, die allesamt in ihrem Spektrum zu den Besten zählen und eigentlich mit Platin überschüttet sein müssten. Doch warum nun PISS TEST? Zum einen, weil sie Metal Mike Saunders, Anführer der ANGRY SAMOANS-Leichenfledderei, endgültig überflüssig machen und dessen Arsch mit ihrer Fortsetzung von „Back From Samoa“ in die ewigen Jagdgründe schicken, zum anderen weil sie dabei lässig auftrumpfend wie die RIP OFFS vor den Bullenwagen der Humorlosikeit pissen und mittels Rob einen Klassenkampf im Sinne von D.I. starten und einfach mal zehn Nazis in Ostberlin aufknüpfen, weil sie nicht einsehen, dass die ihre Steuern bekommen.

PISS TEST - LP I thnk I reviewed this band’s EP a while back when it came in to the rag, but I like this one a lot better. PISS TEST plays ragged, catchy, non-hyphenated p-u-n-k. They sing about getting jaded because you lost your friends to drugs or God. They sing about having to get shitty jobs and being broke as fuck. It’s the kind of record you put on when your friends are drinking on the porch and you’re throwing your empties at the shitty fucking yuppies who moved into your neighborhood and have the audacity to jog by your fucking shithole of a house. You know how no band sounds like DEAD MOON, but you can tell when they have DEAD MOON records in their collection? Yeah, it’s like that. (GH) (Jonny Cat)

Track Name: Mayor of Mississippi
I’m the Mayor of Mississippi, you’ve seen me on the streets/
You ignore my eyes, but I can see through you/
You come across the county/
You come down from the hill/
You buy my neighborhood but you won’t pay my bill/
You went and stole Albina, and you let Vanport drown/
I’m the Mayor of Mississippi, you can’t keep me down/

Lost a house to market figures/
Lost a love to measured numbers/
What’s now left will last forever, it is not for sale/
My family moved out east, they said they’d pay my way/
I’m the Mayor of Mississippi, my home is where I’ll stay/

I’m the Mayor of Mississippi, I’ll be here when you’ve gone/
When the school system has failed you, and you go where you belong/
I don’t need your salted caramels, I don’t need your brand new condos/
I don’t need anything, with a line so long/
I’m the Mayor of Mississippi, and you don’t know my name/
You search to find yourself, but you are all the same/

I’m the Mayor of Mississippi, and you don’t know my name/
I’m the Mayor of Mississippi, and you don’t know my name/
Track Name: Nico Goes To Goth Night
Nico goes to goth night, he’s got his shark pants on/
Nico goes to goth night, how did it take so long/

Nico goes to goth night, and now some girl is crying/
He likes to touch his hair, he wants to start a riot/
Track Name: Macy's
I couldn’t take the pressure/
I couldn’t take the pain/
Of all the expectation/
Of all the poverty/
I felt myself sinking/
I felt myself drowning/
Looking back at nothing/
All my ideals crumbling/

I used to be in anarcho band/
But now I do the windows at Macy’s/
Kids they just don’t understand/
You can’t always go on dreaming/

Lost a few to heroin/
Lost a few to suicide/
Lost a few to new careers/
Lost a few to Jesus Christ

I used to be in an anarcho band/
But now I do the windows at Macy’s/
Mom just smiles and shakes her head/
And says she likes my new haircut/

All my friends are going grey /
We’re going grey, we’re going grey/
All our clothes they start to fade/
They fade to grey, they fade to grey/
It’s okay we’re turning grey/
We’re turning grey, we’re turning grey/
All our dreams they start to fade/
They fade away, they fade away /
Track Name: Everybody
Everybody everybody everbody gonna be famous
Everybody everybody gonna be a star
Everybody everybody everbody gonna be famous
Everybody everybody everbody gonna be… nothing

Going down down going to LA
Deep down in my heart got something to say
Hey look at me man I’m gonna be great
You know I was the lead in my high school play
You gotta gotta gotta gotta keep believing
You gotta working you gotta keep scheming
Gotta kiss the right ass if you want to get far
Please Jesus Christ make me a star

Everybody everybody everbody gonna be famous
Everybody everybody gonna be a star
Everybody everybody everbody gonna be famous
Everybody everybody everbody gonna be… nothing

Oh we gotta band got nothing to lose
And everybody says we gotta pay our dues
But we know how to work it man we’re gonna be huge
Hey we got a write up in the weekly news
We gotta gotta gotta gotta keep a living
We gotta keep working we gotta keep giving
To the devil who’s someday gonna pay our bills
We gonna get famous or we gonna get killed

Everybody everybody everbody gonna be famous
Everybody everybody gonna be a star
Everybody everybody everbody gonna be famous
Everybody everybody everbody gonna be… nothing

Hey everybody look at me
You know I’m gonna be the next big thing
C’mon everbody look at me
I swear I’m gonna be the next big thing
Track Name: What's It Time For?
What’s It Time For?
Track Name: Suicidal Ideation
I’m only twelve years old at the Royal Gorge
They had to hold me down
They had to hold me down
They say little girl what you try that for
They just don’t understand
They just don’t understand this

Ideation! Ideation! Suicidal ideation
Ideation! Ideation! I want to kill myself

Hey you pay attention to me
Hey you you pay attention to me
Hey you pay attention to me
That’s all they think but they can’t feel this

Ideation! Ideation! Suicidal ideation
Ideation! Ideation! I want to kill myself

I’m only twelve years old at the Royal Gorge
They had to hold me down
They had to hold me down
They say little girl what you try that for
They just don’t understand
They just don’t understand this

Ideation! Ideation! Suicidal ideation
Ideation! Ideation! I want to kill myself
Ideation! Ideation! Suicidal ideation
Ideation! Ideation! I’m gonna kill myself
Track Name: Rob Starts A Class War
Rob doesn't go to Reed
No Rob doesn't go to Reed
Rob doesn't go to Reed
He's from Idaho

Rob starts a class war
Starts a class war
Rob starts a class war
Starts a class war
Track Name: No Money
I don’t make no money
I don’t make no money
Because I make bad decisions

I don’t need no money
All I need is you
Track Name: 110 Bandit
Rodrigo's cab driving theme song
Track Name: Tragedy
An adult life spent on the road
I should have just stayed home
How did I get from there to here?
The kids say music saved their life
I think they just stole mine
I got to tell the truth
This hasn’t been fun for years

I say I say it’s all the same
I say I say it’s all the same
I say I say hey it’s all the same
Never asked for nothing else
I say I say it’s all the same
I say I say it’s all the same
I say this ain’t no tragedy
I never tried for nothing else

This ain’t art no it’s just punk
Give the kids just what they want
What they want is to hear me howl and scream
This ain’t life no it ain’t much
Give the kids just what they want
Keep writing songs about politics and human misery

I say I say it’s all the same
I say I say it’s all the same
I say I say hey it’s all the same
Never asked for nothing else
I say I say it’s all the same
I say I say it’s all the same
I say this ain’t no tragedy
I never tried for nothing else
