PISS TEST - “Frigid Punks” EP
"Frigid Punks" might be the closest thing to a perfect punk song that I’ve heard this month. Loud, snotty and fucked up guitar tones. They make fun of the well-stitched punks and cold, detached attitudes. It kinda falls somewhere between SICK PLEASURE and early ANGRY SAMOANS. The next two songs are fuckin’ dumb shit about necrophilia and IPA, but what do you expect? That doesn’t mean it’s bad. Side two has songs about babies licking babies and takin’ cabs to the methadone clinic. Do you like your punk dumb, loud, catchy, and snotty? Get this. (GH) (Jonny Cat)
…the 7” also made the top tens of Lydia Phelps, Sam Lefebvre and Fred Schrunk (Issue #362)
I’ve been hearing a lot about this band lately, so I’m glad I finally got the chance to check this out. I just gotta say, “believe the hype!” This instantly perked my ears up. It’s got that jangly, snotty combination that seems to crawl out from the moss-covered rock up in the Pacific Northwest. I want more… I need more! –Ty Stranglehold (Jonny Cat, facebook.com/pages/JonnyCat-Records)

Piss Test s/t 7”
Only weeks after my sad-sack attempt to tie together the Texas/Portland garage punk sound in the cassette reviews, this little package plopped into my lap, hammering home the final nail. Five solid tracks ranging from that sadly lamented Mortville gunk-sound (© Eric Davidson) to the striped bare and slammin’ SoCal style punk. Things jump into the budget dimension with “Frigid Punks”, a tune that’d get ol’ man Lowry totally panty wet. “Necrophilia (It’s Halhal)” and “IPA” are surefire winners with their turn blue bratty humor and offensive screeds full of beer pussy and corps fucking. Zero intelligence or political value. In other-words: TOTAL PUNK. Perfect dumb on drunk rock. “Babies Making Babies” stretches out a tad into a surf/post punk realm with staggered moody guitar and some hiccupping vocal play. It sorta’ resembles a Static Static track, from what I remember about ‘em. “Cabbin’ To The Methadone Clinic” is exactly what you’d think it is…an angry needle rant put to a groove. The punched in solo is quite memorable and pretty fucking insane sounding for as short as it is. A keeper. What else? Mine’s on white vinyl. What’s yours look like?
