Right Shitty made their recorded debut in 2016, putting Bachelor Of Arts out digitally for maximum ease of access. Now, a couple of years down the line, they reckon that the album has earned itself the right to be pressed into the grooves of a vinyl record, and so here we are, blasting this garage punk goodness on the stereo! Physical release thanks to Copper Feast Records.

As someone who is both right shitty and a bachelor of arts, I feel perhaps a little overqualified to review this record. Let’s just quickly do the basics and we’ll see how we fare: back in 2016, this thing existed in the digital realm, but it’s now been pressed up by fans of delinquency Copper Feast. It turns out what burns does actually return, as this record sounds as fresh and feral as it did back then. The ‘90s melody-making, scuzz-shredding and unhinged hardcore moments all add up to the same good-time indecency.
Not to be crass, but I feel like Right Shitty were the band everyone who pretend to be the Vaccines was promising us. They’re loud and crude and they say what they need to in a minimal amount of minutes and seconds; their straightforward guitars actually sound good, though, their hooks twisted around a damp lo-fi production that feels pretty relatable to this arachnophobe basement dweller. At times, Right Shitty feel like half a ‘90s Britpop and half an alternative to Metz; “Ripoff” has a jaunty, snarky melody worthy of your fave landfill indie band rolling through its verse, but for its chorus it ditches, pushing up the volume and offering screams, dissonance, all that evil stuff. “Mouthwash”, which follows, does literally the exact same thing, but even lets the corny melody join the feedback, when it’s time.
Suffice to say I feel like I haven’t heard really heard anyone make a ‘Bachelor of Arts’ before. These two aesthetics sound like such a peculiarity, drawn together: the part of Right Shitty that could be on Nevermind the Buzzcocks certainly isn’t the same part that read This Band Could Be Your Life, but they work together pretty damn well.
