Why Can't I Keep My Big Fuckin' Mouth Shut



Once I thought about it, I knew I had to post this single next, seeing as "Last Lost Fight" has practically the same line in it as the Lazy Cowgirls song in the last post. Unfortunately, my copy has a bite taken out of it so that the outermost grooves are kinda crunchy; because of that, I'm using the version of "Last Lost Fight" from the "Pissing Out The Poison" CD. "Trying To Get By" is the vinyl rip, though, since it's not on the CD. It's still a bit crunchy, but once the short little bass intro ends and the guitars kick in you'll hardly notice. It won't break your iPod, dude, it's punk rock.

The note that I found inside the sleeve has me thinking that I bought this from Vital Music; it probably seems odd now to look back at when buying some Rip Offs vinyl was an average everyday purchase, instead of dropping big bucks on eBay. (I did eventually get the LP and all the singles back then, in case you're wondering.) I blotted out the "suspicious thing" that Tom and I were talking about because I think it's funnier that way.

Pretty much the best thing you could wake up to on a Monday morning! I was lucky/cursed enough to live in Ohio for a few years in the 90s and used to see the turks, Gaunt, Brainiac, Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments..nostalgia and venom in a perfect dose!

Wow, that's a scene I would've liked to have been around. Ohio in the '80s and '90s -- Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton -- had a lot of good stuff. A lot of records that are among my all-time favorites.

Still cranking them out today, too, obviously.

hey - I digitized my 7" - if you want that version Last Lost Fight - let me know here, and I'll get in touch...

Great post - I miss these guys - they used to come to Pittsburgh on a regular basis, and Eric was always a madman!

Thanks, but I think I'm covered for now; I ripped the song anyway, besides having the CD. And I'm sure I could always find another copy of the 7".

The one time I was going to see New Bomb Turks, they were scheduled to play a show at a club within the Danbury Airport and then it got cancelled. That was around '96 or '97.
