Yeah, it’s a re-release. What the fuck you gonna do about it? If you missed ‘SSS‘ first time around, then your 2006 would have been somewhat musically lacking; so be thankful to those good folks at Earache Records, because they’re doing most of you one hell of a favour.
SSS stands for Short Sharp Shock, and frankly, this Liverpool quartet couldn’t have picked a more appropriate name. They like their old-school thrash. They like their old-school hardcore. They like to fuse the two into razor-sharp, warp-speed slices of brutality like ‘Damaged Goods‘ and ‘Monster’, and then top it all off with a brilliantly obnoxious, fuck-you attitude (which I think is starting to rub off on me). Get listening if you know what’s good for you, you pricks – you can check out ‘The Beast‘ if you click the box that says play track.
The band have several dates lined up for the summer, including a brief jaunt with their labelmates and kindred spirits, Municipal Waste. Get those circle-pittin’ skills up to scratch for:
Sun 5th – Southampton, Joiners (with Municipal Waste) Mon 6th – Newcastle, The Cluny (with Municipal Waste) Tue 7th – Liverpool, The Barfly (with Municipal Waste) Wed 8th – Glasgow, King Tuts (with Municipal Waste) Thu 9th – Sheffield, DnR Bar (with Municipal Waste) Fri 10th – London, Underworld (with Municipal Waste) Sat 25th – Bradford, 1 in 12 Club (with Municipal Waste)
