San Francisco's Terry Malts follow-up their smash I'm Neurotic single with another blazing three song EP. Their heads-down live shows and immaculate power-pop song-writing has made this irreverent punk trio has become one of the most talked about bands in SF in ages. Mashing up the best bits from such stellar forebears as The Undertones, Buzzcocks and Descendents, Terry Malts haven't forgotten that one of the key elements of punk has always been FUN.
All three songs on "Something About You" are full of fuzzy/crunchy riffs, galloping drums and sing-along vocal hooks. The title tune speeds by at a brisk clip, full of "ooh ooh" backing vocals and classic SoCal punk vibes. "No Sir, I'm Not A Christian" is possibly the catchiest statement of atheism we've ever heard, 1:35 of self-determination. "Fun Night" is a current live favorite, always sure to get the kids in the crowd jumping around. Fast and furious, it's feedback-laden guitars are the exclamation at the end of the excellent single. Another future classic from Terry Malts!
All copies on pink vinyl.
