There have been some excellent dumb punk songs this year from Wet Blankets, Ausmuteants and many others – but “I Ain’t Going To Church” from Buck Biloxi and the Fucks takes the goddamn cake.

(“Driving in their fancy cars/dressed up in their shirts/they think they’re so good and pure/I think they’re reverse”).


The sheer rip-off audacity of this band is so over the top, I can’t help but admire them. LIFE STINKS blatantly and without apology steal the riff from Flipper’s “Love Canal” on their new 45 – and it’s fantastic. They did the same thing with “Sister Ray” on their album, and if they’re cool with it, and you’re cool with it, I’m cool with it.

I’m back on the wagon w/ Life Stinks now that they’re put out this massive single. Stream it above, and read what we had to say about them in Dynamite Hemorrhage #1 in my next post.


Check out this sloppy spirit-of-‘78 punk rock from Minneapolis’ THE SLEAZE, released on a new 12" on – that’s right – “Total Punk” Records (!).

Outstanding CRIME-like guitar, mushmouth vocals and a lackadaisical aimlessness that stands far above the punk rock pack in 2013.
