CHOP SUEY Presents:
The Spits are already as ingrained in modern punk music as possible, yetstill manage to devour the rip-offs and influence the youth of todaywithout even looking like they’re trying. Going strong now for over fifteenyears, smashing the windows and tearing down the walls of our minds everytime they roll through town, these truly vicious visionaries have cookedpunk down to its most powerful base form, crawling like Neanderthals through the muck, and creating a flaming trail of hits that’ll take quite afit of dementia to ever forget. A perfect distillation of punk’s original
open-ended weirdness, and modern music’s serrated salvation, The Spits have proven themselves to be no one to fuck with, over and over again. True headliners, never to be followed and for good reason.An old tape passed along through one of their biggest and earliestSupporters—Sir Lord Bob Kondrak of Seattle—was what really blew up the spot everywhere we managed to hijack the stereos during that magical summer of 2001, and ever since, The Spits have been setting the bar high, throughout the Midwest, and soon after, the world over. With an ingenious amalgamation of DEVO’s early synth work in tandem with the absolute best Thug-Punk grunt the Ramones could ever maliciously muster, The Spits never try to reinvent anything, they just rip it’s head off and drive it home time and time again.
