If there's a band holding it down for Sub Pop's early 90s salad days, it's Pennsylvania boozers Pissed Jeans. The sloppy rockers sound frozen in grunge time on their third release, and it works incredibly well for the dipso punks.
Pissed Jeans singer Matt Korvette leads the raw 12-song attack - an unsteady mix of Jesus Lizard tumult and Melvins sludge power - with a wobbling vocal manner that reflects the band's infamously debauched live shows. There's no cleaning up in the studio for Pissed Jeans, just purely destructive intentions. The result is one of the year's best crank-it records.
