Album Review

Coitus Int. – “Dead Excitement” – [Bunkerpop]

mickeyslim   9/26/2012   7-inch, A Library


Dutch punk from guitarist Marcel Uffing, vocalist Jos de Groot, bassist Heino l’Ortye, and drummer Rob van Asperen. They’re self proclaimed “shy” punks, but??I would call these guys ambivolent punks, just because of lyrics like, “Look, look outside, there’s nothing to get up for,” and, “I’ll wake up and wait for tomorrow.” Also, they describe all the other punks flocking to Amsterdam for the early 80’s squatter riots, while they sat at home eating chips and sucking beer bottles. Played gigs mostly squats and didn’t really like playing shows because of the gross atmosphere and spikey haired punks yelling “Play faster!”

Five killer, steady. heavy bass-driven songs, but none of the instruments very pronounced.??Vocals are diverse, changing from song to song, from a yell to a low reverby talking (with no FCCs). No real soloing, so you can tell it’s really the group itself that makes this music unique and not just one guy with a bunch of amateurs. Stayed together to make a few more albums, mostly along the vein of “I Shouldn’t Go.” LYRIC SHEET AND LINER NOTES! check it…
