In the über-saturated punk genre, it's always exciting to find a band capable of squeezing true laughs into their ribald lyrical material. Witness the Stiches. The OC band's buzz-saw-yet-gutteral sound is elevated above the garage floor by such titles as "I Just Want to Fuck" and "Vibrator Buzz." Banging our heads to these songs, we're reminded of the good ol' days of punk, as we contemplate the irony that such material hearkens back to simpler times.
