Pain Teens - Death Row Eyes

May 1992 Sub Pop single.

Not bad, but a bit derivative. It's pretty clear from the opening guitar sounds on the first track that these guys are into the Butthole Surfers. Very Paul-Leary-esque sound. A bit too much, really.

As for the B-Side, it's also a Surfers' staple; take the audio from a strange or disturbing call into a radio talk-show, and build a song around it.

They're not terrible, (like Wednesday's pick...) it just feels like someone did this kind of thing already.

A: Death Row Eyes
B: The Smell
