Ssssnakes - Kissss Thissss
Released January 18, 2011 via Specialist Subject | Rating: 5/5 | By Ian Chaddock
Having started out as 3/5ths of one of the UK’s finest punk band, The Arteries, Swansea quartet is completed by their merch guy and all-round ligging legend Pugs. Just a chance for the members to switch round instruments and play parties initially, Sssssnakes have grown into a slithering little beast itself. Highlights include the garage punk anthem ‘Don’t Tread On Us’, ode to their big-haired friend ‘Microphone Head’ and the ode to skateboarding (yet lamenting of British weather) that is ‘Sssssnake Or Die’. From start to finish this is fun, sing-along stuff, as is their live show. Fans of The Ergs!, Dead Milkmen and the Descendents will love this. Sssssimply essssential.
