Bonus New Band Spotlight: Neon Piss

December 16th, 2010 by

Poached from the always essential Terminal Escape blog by Robert Collins…

San Francisco’s NEON PISS are so fukkn good. Every song reminds me of something that I can’t quite put my finger on, and still all of them sound entirely original. At different moments during my first listen, I clearly heard elements of COMPLICATIONS, NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, JAY REATARD, WIPERS and others, but I stopped listening for references (in fact I stopped everything I was doing) and just listened. Three times in a row. This is easily the best demo I’ve stumbled across in ages (though technically it stumbled into my hands, but my point was simply that I had no preconceptions and no idea what to expect) — every second of this tape is catchy as hell and there is not a genre catch phrase to sum them up… it’s just sincere punk rock. I like sincere punk rock and I look forward to seeing NEON PISS tonight…San Franciscans do yourself a favor and go to the MRR Presents show at Balazo tonight!

I’m audibly speechless. The only word I can come up with is – ‘whoa’. And I don’t think that’s even a good enough word to describe these guys. They slay.
