THE TWATS kick out their 3rd release with 3 unreleased songs, one year after their formation. Straight from DC, The Twats bring it back to the 80’s hardcore style with lyrics that range from sarcastic to heartfelt to witty. The Washington Post claims that singer Cuntess Twat (whose name was left off the credits of this album…whoever did that is hanging by their nutsack) is a mix between “Sam Kinison and Joan Rivers.” We aren’t sure what that means but we are assuming she is loud and angry with a great fashion sense.

RETCHING RED is a Bay Area hardcore punk band that formed in August 2004. Retching Red members are no amateurs at this game. Female vocalist CINDER BLOCK is formerly from the world renowned punk band TILT, among many others since 1983. She also sang in FABULOUS DISASTER for a 6 month stint in 2003. Cinder holds no prisoners in this band and she’s pissed! While bassist MIKE CYCO LOCO also sings in the long lasting notorious OPPRESSED LOGIC and has been in a fuckload of bands like ANGRY SAMOANS, STRUNG UP, LAST ROUND UP and many others since 1986. This is Retching Red’s last release!

Reviews:
Short Fast & Loud Issue #19
Two very similar female-fronted hardcore units attach this split EP with anger and hate!!  Rapid fire vocals and loud, well produced hardcore are on the menu of this EP, wrapped up with a sweet package of red/white wax and a cool cover to boot.  RR are from the Bay Area and rip shit up to no end on this.  This band has grown into a powerhouse.  Solid songs with great lyrics, my favorite being “Stop Breeding”.  Anyone who has hit the Wal-Mart on a weekend afternoon knows all about this subject matter: “There should be free abortion, complimentary baby murder!”  THE TWATS, from Pennsylvania, lay down some good shit as well, very similar as I mentioned, to RR.  Mad, fast punk with bared fangs and good lyrics and they also show a great affection for the punk scene’s underappreciated “working class”.  Solid.
