The Stiffies - Rub It In LP. The Stiffies are a snotty '77 punk band from Oklahoma who burst on the scene earlier this year with their stand-out EP ‘Four Inches Of Disappointment’. That one definately left a mark and they're back with 11 spectacular cuts of pure ‘77 punk rock sleaze on their newest slab ‘Rub It In’. It's got nearly a dozen blasts of faster, louder type mongo punk with nary a dud in the bunch. You know, the good shit with blazing guitars, alotta attude and knuckle-headed lyrics about drunken fights, bad relationships, loud mouths and killin’ boredom. I had a feeling this record was gonna be good and they deliver once again to produce one of the best albums of the year. Fans of anything from first wavers like the Dickies, Wierdos and Angry Samoans to newer bands like the Stitches, Briefs, Bodies and the Wheelz will dig. The LP includes a nice two-sided, printed lyrics sheet insert as well. Recommended. Import from the UK.
