#8 - Wives - Wives Hate Police
As much as I love the more sonically experimental work evident on this year’s Everything In Between and 2008’s Nouns, I think Randy Randall and Dean Spunt are at their best doing ridiculously tight, angry, 2 minute punk blasts which are more evident on their early tracks compiled on Weirdo Rippers, and their earlier pre-No Age band, the 3-piece Wives.
This is one of the many excellent ridiculously tight, angry, 2 minute punk blasts on Wives were responsible for. When I said Jay Dee’s Fuck The Police is a not-far-behind modern day equivalent of the NWA classic, you could perhaps say Wives Hate Police is the same to Black Flag’s Police Story; honest, brutal and succinct fuck-yous to the LA Police.
AND I DEFINITELY. DON’T NEED. SOME MAN, COMING INTO MY ROOM. FUCKING WITH MY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT. NOOOOOO! PIIIIGS! IIIIIIN! OUR HOUSE.
