The Yips - 1000% Fox
The Yips 1000% Fox 7" (Silt Breeze, 1995)
If anyone wants to fight over the claim that Silt Breeze was one of the best labels of the 1990s, come'ere and put on some gloves. I'll bop you til you are punch drunk. Ol Tom Lax there in Philly Town had (has) quite an ear. One of my favorite records he put out is the debut by this Columbus two piece. Containing alumni from Mike Rep & the Quotas, these two made two albums after this single, both being a bit "indie." But this little gem is a rockin' punker with a drugged out guitar. Some of you on the tight ass train might argue the punkatude of this, but you're just looking for another fight. If so come on! I'm a shortie with a chip on my shoulder. I'll fight you again. -Scott S.
A nice thing about the bottom falling out of the mid-90s indie market is that you can now find lots of Siltbreeze stuff that was gone or outrageous for years.
