Four pre-Nobunny punk stompers

Artist: Sneaky Pinks
Title: S/T 7"
Label: 1-2-3-4 Go! and Rubber Vomit Records
Release date: Originally released in 2005, repressed in 2009

Though the cool looking foil sleeves are long gone, this classic 7" from the same clever mind that brings us Nobunny is now easier to find thanks to a repressing by 1-2-3-4 Go! Records.

"I Can't Wait" could have easily been written by B. Jay, as the chorus and backup vocals are definitely reminiscent of The Lids. The flipside has three quick blasts of punk in precussion-heavy shoutalong "Kill Kill Kill", lo-fi stomper "Life Stupid, I Stupid", and a cheesy yet fun theme song that leads into an eternal drum loop.

None of the songs sound the same, and each one is a keeper. If you love Nobunny, this will be right up your alley. If not, it might annoy you. If you don't like Nobunny and are annoyed, that's kinda funny! Seriously, this was my wisest purchase since I discovered Useless Eaters a month ago.

Wait. Wait. Who IS behind Nobunny?

Justin Champlin from The Sneaky Pinks and Okmoniks. I didn't know he was so prolific until recently.
