The Spits are already as ingrained in modern punk music as possible, yet still manage to devour the rip-offs and influence the youth of today without even looking like they're trying. Going strong now for over fifteen years, smashing the windows and tearing down the walls of our minds every time they roll through town, these truly vicious visionaries have cooked punk down to its most powerful base form, crawling like Neanderthals through the muck, and creating a flaming trail of hits that'll take quite a fit of dementia to ever forget.
A perfect distillation of punk's original open-ended weirdness, and modern music's serrated salvation, The Spits have proven themselves to be a band not to fuck with, over and over again. Originally released in 2003, Slovenly Recordings is pleased as punch to reissue the band's second ever full-length effort, The Spits #2 ("wheelchair") LP, classic street punk sans politics meets early '80s arcade game psychedelia. A must have for garage snobs, crusties, and rock & roll radicals...this record rocks harder than you do!
