Tough Shits - Prick Up Your Ears-Complete Tough Shits



We played with these dudes in Philadelphia.
Aside from being some of the sweetest dudes we met on tour, they were also the weirdest and the most fun. Their show was sweet as hell and involved a guitar being smashed....in front of twenty people. Either way, I knew we were in for a treat when Greg came in and asked if they had anyone for the guest list and the first person to be put on was the singer's mom. Mom was then treated to a set that included jerking off the microphone and talking almost exclusively about drugs.

The songs are fucking brilliant and arranged perfectly to strut their simplicity. Sweet guitar playing, great harmonies, wonderful lyrics. I'm super stoked on these dudes.

gg-g-g-g-g-g-get it. so most highly recommended.

I'm really liking this stuff. I like the straight forward easy access route. Clean production and dirty messages. Fun fun fun. I'll check them out when they come to SF.

"REMEMBER, ALL YE FAITHFUL, IF YOU DIG THIS STUFF, PROVE IT AND GO PURCHASE THESE RECORDS AT YOUR LOCAL SHOP OF WARES. ROCK AND ROLL IS FREE, BUT PAYING FOR IT ISN'T."

Neither is photography! Link it back to my flickr page.
