some new reviews from vice
The R.I.P Society label out of Sydney just doesn’t know when to stop when it comes to putting out boss ass vinyl. The last batch of shit I got from them included the more or less perfect Bitch Prefect 7”, which I enjoy quite thoroughly, thank you very much. I’m guessing the, uh… lilt of this single might be too much for some of you tough guys out there, but if you’re the type who wished those Sarah bands were a bit more inept and downed-out, this might be your type of thing.
Then we also have the debut LP from Perth’s Golden Staph, whose femme-fronted squall and sprawl reminds me of the early 80s LA band Mood of Defiance sent forward in time to be influenced by Goner Records alumni and other assorted sunglass wearers. But hey… that could just be the way the afternoon beer is hitting me. Next up on R.I.P Society is stuff from Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys and Woolen Hats, so sit tight and put on your best bib for their arrival.

And coming in just in time to soundtrack your summertime shenanigans is Separation Anxiety, the debut long player from that Aussie dumbo rock super group, Divorced. These days it’s very rare to get an ear load of a band with a genuine stupid-and-drunk-and-I-don’t-give-a-shit vibe that doesn’t come off like a bunch of closet ascot donners, but these guys nailed it. They play in such an honest fashion it would make Dick Manitoba, Peter ‘Dirty’ Jones, and maybe even Steve Corbin proud and green with envy. Recycled riffs from their countrymen, songs about pissing on couches and wanting to be dead, horribly awesome cover art… it’s all there. All you need is a case of Shlitz and this disc and your party is ON!
