Lumpy & the Dumpers - Three Song CS
Nasty, sloppy hardcore in the vein of late 70's early 80's KBD style punk. Lumpy & the Dumnpers was a band I was graced by live performances by twice on our tour. I was stoked to play with them the first time in a basement in Urbana, Illinois and even more pumped the next day in Chicago as I had a taste of their music already so I got to take it in a little more. Snotty as hell and plenty of energy made this band one of my favorites on the tour and we played with some damn good bands. "Future" is my favorite track, the alternating guitars and 'off' rhythms followed by that dirgy downward spiral of a verse make it a real standout for me. Indiana punks really have it going on. The kids at the Chicago show were going absolutely nuts, non stop moshing the whole way through and the room blew up when the "Face the Meat" chant came on. Great stuff, I'll put up their other tape when I get the chance to rip it.
