Green Noise EXCLUSIVE: COKE BOTTLE CLEAR VINYL. 100 pressed!
Absolutely essential entry in the Drunk Dial catalog...if you've heard the 2020 album from Ditches (which understandably went quick as a fuse, sold out quick as packs of Black Cat firecrackers on the day before the 4th of July), than you're already in the know...if not, this serves as a kick-ass intro to this band from Sweden. While they might be tired of the comparison (maybe not because Jeff Burke's name always shows up on the credits of their records), one can't help hear the Dirtnap Denton influence, a can of pop and punch shook up and popped for action, a flask of whiskey poured into a can of Annie Green Springs, spower pop with plenty of punk punch, the band letting it rip on these two sides, ripped on various liquids and edibles, offering one original and as always a cover on the flipside, this one revealing another possible influence, if so this one coming from much closer to home, "Abra Cadaver" from Swedish outfit The Hives, Ditches dragging the song deeper into the dank basement of a late night. Get it, crank it and let the summer of 2022 begin with a bang!!! -- winch (green noise)
"For those who don’t know, here’s how Drunk Dial Records operates: we invite artists we adore into a recording studio to write and record an original song and cover a classic tune in one session. But there’s a catch! The artist or band in question must compose and perform these songs while inebriated. The recordings are then released as a 7” vinyl single."
