FUCK KNIGHTS/G-BIZ – Split!
I really like weird punk. It’s something that has grown on me over the years, going to shows and seeing that one band that plays their music differently. Bands like that stand out the most, though, are only appreciated by those who have developed an ear for such a style. I especially love the weird punk girls these bands attract. I’m glad to see that a scene like this is thriving in other communities other than my own. I’m also happy to see that splits are still a popular medium among the underground. The only thing I don’t like about splits is that sometimes I find myself liking one half of the split over the other. In this case, I liked the Fuck Knights half because of their rock n’ roll sound with megaphone vocals, but G-Biz brings an electronic sound that is still fun to listen to. It was a good idea to include live recordings in this split, but I think they could have gotten their hands on some better equipment to record live. I can barely hear anything on the Fuck Knights’ live track.
