No Muff Too Tuff[engl] Oh, shit. A CÜLO and a NANCY guy in a band together? Are you serious? It's gonna be a weirdo for sure... This two-man project features AJ Durso of GAS RAG, BIRTH DEFORMITIES, CÜLO, etc... and Joe Muffin of NANCY fame , already that info should be enough for an outstanding combination! So the MUFF DIVERS play a sweet mash up of punk, rock, & 70's glam. Our boy from SORRY STATE RECORDS Daniel found the correct words for this EP: Drum machine-fueled punk-pop with some of the most juvenile lyrics I've ever heard, but something about the songwriting here just knocks it out of the park for me. I think the reason is that everything is so centered on the vocals. I mean, the riffs are interesting and the drum machine is actually pretty cool, but MUFF DIVERS put those simple, catchy vocal melodies right up front in a way that reminds me of classics like JAY REATARD, THE DICKIES, and maybe even THE RAMONES. I feel like 90% of the music that I recommend here is riff-based; in other words, the songs tend to hang around guitar parts with the other instruments acting more as texture or accents, but MUFF DIVERS are all about singing along. I also love the whole idiotic aesthetic here, and if you flipped out about that DESTROY ALL ART compilation (or if you have soft spots for both KBD and 90s underground punk) I have a feeling you'll love what this band is putting down as well. Highly recommended. So we have a beefy drum-machine-fueled punk with hooks, could it be the new CONEHEADS? The new DICKIES? The new JAY REATARD? WE SHALL SEE! You only have to know that it rules and is the kinda stuff that will stick in your head for days! GET IT!
