Shirks - Talk to Action: Singles and Unreleased 2008-2013 [BLUE VINYL] – New LP
Regular price $ 20.00
"Hailing from Washington, DC, there is obviously a lengthy punk rock history that The Shirks are adding to, and in some respects there is no difference to what the Dischord bands were doing back in the early days i.e. sticking two fingers up to those wanting to tie them down to what's being done now...Such is their disregard for following 'normal' behaviour i.e. in this 'modern age' the band seem to actively eschew the more accepted ways of getting their name out there by deliberately not having much of a presence on the internet. Back to the music though, The Shirks manage to take that early primitive Dischord sound and regress it a few stages, to produce a really scuzzed up punk rock approach that makes bands such as the Teen Idles and S.O.A. sound positively overproduced. [For a] meaningful comparison to The Shirks then maybe I'd start by saying they're like a cross between The New Bomb Turks, Space Cookie and The Night Birds..."
