Smart Ass Punk Rock Kept This Country Great

Obviously, if you've already looked at the scans of this 7", you know why I bought it. I don't always take a chance on ridiculous punk stuff, but seeing as the Bay Area's shitty punk bands are generally more interesting than most other cities shitty punk bands, this was worth a stab. What you see is what you get, and I am laying the whole of the Dad side of this platter on you. It's the stronger side, and shitfire, it's got the Sabbath cover. You get some variety here.



I vaguely remember Very Small Records, but looking at some of their releases, I don't know why they aren't fresher in my mind. A sampling of acts reveals such luminaries as Schlong, Pounded Clown, Horny Mormons, and Sewer Trout. These are the kind of bands, and in a few cases, the bands, whose names would always make me laugh when I saw their show listings for venues like Berkeley Square in the SF Weekly. I'll tell you one thing, some of the guitar soloing reminds me a bit of Bob Stinson. I wonder where Geezer Butt, Buttmissile and Fag Boat are today, don't you?

Hey Tony - Just so you know the Sea Pigs were from Sacramento (as were Pounded Clown, Horny Mormons, and Sewer Trout) not the Bay Area. Easy to get confused because of the Very Small Records association. For a few years Very Small released a lot of Sacto punk. Discography at http://www.sl.net/%7Ettbooks/moolala/disc.htm

Ahhh, thanks Scott. I had no idea where these bands were really from, but I am guessing I am not supposed to lump Sacramento in with the Bay Area? hahaha. From now on I'll use the phrase Northern California when I am guessing. I don't suppose you have any Sewer Trout?

i think david hayes is on soulseek with his directory full of his Very Small releases. I was very excited to find this...but I couldn't download from him for some reason. shucks. Very Small was one of my favorite labels in High School. Always intersting stuff.
