The Rip Offs - Got A Record

Legendary San Francisco lowlifes The Rip Offs were a swilly antidote to much of the humourless no-fun hardcore of the nineties, staking out a tiny patch of land for themselves and like-minded bands amid a sea of screamo and buttflap-types. A beer-sodden bleary-eyed bender of a record, containing fourteen songs in a little over twenty minutes, this seems designed to not only alienate the more sensitive hardcore crowd but also the poofy-shirted 60's throwbacks dominating the garage rock scene. Seemingly recorded with two tin cans and some string, this is the perfect soundtrack for one of those end-of-summer crime sprees that inevitably end way too soon.
