Here’s an interesting one - Chicago noise-punkers Shorty’s long-out-of-print genre classic ‘Thumb Days’ has got a very limited repress with pretty cool silkscreened sleeves on Gasoline Boost. Al Johnson and Mark Shippy formed US Maple after the demise of this band, whose only full-length release was this Albini-produced ripper from ‘93.
They totally fit in that scything, trebly, dirty, hard-grooving Chicago sound of the era, influenced by ‘80s post-blues angst-punk grunters like The Birthday Party, The U-Men and Scratch Acid, there’s loads of Sims-esque bass grooves and nasty hi-gain guitar crunch and wild, yelping vocals. It’ll appeal to people who like Rapeman, Circus Lupus, Tad, stuff on Skin Graft, Melvins, Bitch Magnet, Nirvana. Totally unhinged, pounding scuzz’n’splatter riff rock that makes me pine for the days when ‘orrible bands like this were all over the place.
