The Spits - The Spits vol. 1 (2000)

The Spits are another imperative listen for a fan of lo-fi garage punk. May as well start with what I've got handy, at the beginning with vol. 1. Called as much because the band has released four self-titled albums therefore making an unofficial naming scheme necessary. Naturally the Spits took cues from the preceding generations of punk rockers; you might mistake them for the Ramones. However, their stage act might cause you to confuse them with the Mummies, for these guys are also known to dress up in outlandish costumes, including as mummies among other things. If you're unfamiliar or simply missing this volume, I recommended to low fidelity lovers.
