Jerk Alert "Dirty Slurs" LP

Image of Jerk Alert "Dirty Slurs" LP


"I was honestly almost pissing my pants
with anticipation to get this record…this is fantastic, raw punk from
Bloomington, Indiana with a slight, wild garage edge of Loli and The
Chones mixed with some straight forward hardcore punk…maybe a slight
resemblance to The Deadly Weapons too…but the emphasis here is very
much on punk. Wild punk with killer female vocals. I was blown away by
the handful of tracks I heard before I got the LP and man, you know
what, this is gonna be my record of the year…I know it…damn, it’s only
just January so it’s all down hill from here! Seriously, I honestly
don’t think anything is gonna top this for me…what is it about
Bloomington and this amazing breed of original, raw punk rock? Jerk
Alert have that wonderful rabid edge of Bloomington greats The Gizmos
and The Panics…that’s the sound I’d kill for…I’m so overly impressed. I
knew this would rule...but Jesus Christ. This record has it all for
me…in spades, it’s fun, vicious, imaginative and raw…ask me in December
and I’ll be I stick by this being my record of 2009."-No Front Teeth Records
