The Shirks
Dangerous/Young and Filthy/Get Out
Big Neck Records

So enigmatic...Try as I might (and I tried very hard indeed), I couldn't find a single piece of information on this band. Their presence on Big Neck leads me to assume they are American, and a wee blurb I read somewhere suggests that they might possibly be from Washington, but that's all I got for ya, folks. (There exists a UK band with the same name, but they sound exactly like The Libertines, and Britpop/punk this record ain't.) What it is is a brash trifecta of blazin' So-Cal punk, all sneering Bators vocals and quickfire guitars backed by an irresistible jive beat. This girl digs it, man, and so should you.
