The Stitches hit me right away. Their name was the best of all the new kids on the block and it was making clear to everyone that this is a PUNK ROCK band and nothing else! Their look (imagine some skate holding Heartbreakers!) especially on the quite a few 7inch singles was THE right one, the perfect mix-up of 1977 poster collage technique and its 90s improvement! Their sound the possible best from skate punks who knew their roots (hardcore) but knew as well that the roll element is factor no.1 to make some asses shake, just like what U.S. Bombs did. This EP is now legendary. It has at least five pressings with different colors on the stripes (pink, red, blue, green, and the 15th anniversary re-release on black!) and eight totally double-edged punk blasts, just like the cool razor logo they had on all of their records. Two amazing covers on La Peste's "Better Off Dead" and Shane McGowan's "That Woman's Got me Drinking" and less than twenty minutes of blazing REAL punk rock action! In my top 10 fave punk records of the 90s easily.
