I’m going to be straight up with you, I still fucking love Guttermouth. I know the majority of people stopped listening to them back when they were still in high school, but fuck that… their music is fun and they play some damn good skate punk. While I wasn’t a huge fan of their 2006 release of Shave The Planet, Guttermouth has posted 4 songs for free (2 not on any albums, 2 that are on a split they are selling only on tour), and they completely capture the old sound of Guttermouth.
If you’re looking for really serious, heartfelt lyrics, look elsewhere. These senior punks have some self-deprecating humor with the oldster love song of “Together” and “Bingo” where Mark sings “At 23 you’ve reached your prime…Now I play bingo because we’re getting old and there’s nothing left to do”.
“The Towel” is one of the heaviest Guttermouth songs I’ve heard in a while, and all 4 would make for a killer EP. If you dig skate punk at all, you can’t really go wrong with these veterans, they’ve been at it 25 years now and still rock harder than most bands.
