In between 2007's relatively underwhelming 'Hope for Men' and 2013's excellent 'Honeys', Pissed Jeans dropped 'King of Jeans', a collection of songs dealing with subjects like upskirting, pornography, male pattern baldness, and laziness. The album features what is by now probably their best known song ('False Jesii, Part 2'), one of their most common set openers ('She is Science Fiction'), and possibly the song on which their sound veers closest to orthodox 'punk', as well as the only song of any band to which I've ever crowdsurfed ('Human Upskirt'). Whilst all of these songs are very good, the album also features a fair bit of filler like 'Spent' and 'R-Rated Movie'. I'd definitely recommend getting this album to existing Pissed Jeans fans. For those unfamiliar with them, you'll probably dig them if you like bands like the Melvins, Mudhoney, Scratch Acid, and Fucked Up, but either of their last two albums, the aforementioned 'Honeys' or 2017's 'Why Love Now' would probably serve as better points of introduction than 'King of Jeans'.
