$ 5.99
Torcha Shed / Neon Maniacs - Split 7”.  The UK’s Torcha Shed, who contain members of Stench, kick things off with “Meet Me In The George Bar”. The song starts off promising with a warbly siren of guitars veering into a bunch of pub noise and than into a straight up catchy mid tempo pub rock hit. It’s a quality beer clangin’ pub rock anthem in the vein of pint-scarred champions like Cock Sparrer and the Partisans. On the flip, The Neon Maniacs lead singer kinda sounds like the lead singer of the Parasites. For a pop punk band like the Parasites, the vocals match the subject matter. But for a gnarly punk band that’s not singing about love and relationships, the vocals really stand out with the subject matter about zombies and a snarky chorus singing “They’re going to eat you”. The Neon Maniacs amped up song writing is on point and they definatley make it work.
