Record Of The Day: the Tough Shits- “Self Titled LP”
I had the privilege of opening for these knuckleheads last month. Big Ups to Thirsty and Miserable for putting that together! Great show and great times!
My appreciation for this LP has been rapidly growing since my first spin. I’ve been likening the Tough Shits to mid/late-era Dead Milkmen… They don’t take themselves too seriously, they blend fun lyrics with bouncy bass fills AND they are from Philadelphia. Right? Right. Also, tracks like the organ-driven “She’s A Loner” tell us that our buddies have a bit of a soul beneath their Stooges shirt. I say… treat your turntable to this tasty treat! SOO good!
Released 2011 via Burger Recordings
