Swastika Girls - Joey Ramoe Is Dead EP







This record is everything i hate & love about record collecting and music, from the mildly offensive name, totally inept playing, the one sided vinyl, the flip with some scrawled words written around in the circle of the disk, "You’re going to notice something, we decided to turn off the overhead music for a day, As our Nation continues to prosper and our lives proceed, we at 24 hour fitness want to create a quiet reminder of what occurred that terrible day. We hope that you think about your own workout, you’ll also take time to reflect upon both the suffering and selfless heroism that defined that day in our Nations history. We are glad you chose to spend a portion of it with us. Enjoy you’re quieter than usual workout…" the hand written sleeve with picture of someones vacation cut into the back side of the sleeve, obscure and hipster name dropping, this thing screams contrived, trying way to hard, hipster bullshit all over it. I'm sure these hipsters all sat around and patted each other on the back with smiles of utter joy and delight when this piece of shit came out and I’m sure Daddy paid for the pressing…
I don't know shit about this band and really i don't care much, i've already made my opinions about them and either way, i love this absolutely horrid piece of shit and it gives me hope of uncovering more beautifully horrible records for the mere price of 2 dollars....

Happy Labor Day you miserable lot!

god-fucking-bless America!

But isn't most art about some asshole trying to get laid? If it transcends it's usually an accident and aren't we lucky to be there?
