Spider Bags
Hey Delinquents 7''

Rating: 6.5 closed motels out of 10

Spider Bags first seven inch!  It's fine - not as good as the band they would become a few years after this, but still totally listenable and worth checking out if you randomly happen across it like I did.  Both the title track (also available on the full-length "Goodbye Cruel World, Hello Crueler World") and the b-side "Professionals" are mid-tempo affairs, kinda intentionally loose and sloppy (a descriptor that would fit their entire catalog), but not real strong in the hooks department.  Start with 2012's "Shake My Head" if you want to hear this great band once they hit full stride.  I'm not saying they got better because they moved to North Carolina, but...
