FROM THE STACKS: The Coathangers

The Coathangers

By Aaron Richter

We get a lot of crap CDs at the self-titled offices. But once in a while, a pleasant surprise slips into our promo stack. Here’s a recent delivery that knocked the S/T staff on its collective ass.

The Coathangers

Album: Scramble (Suicide Squeeze)
Vibe: “Rock Lobster” on a sour streak–these brats beat back.
RIYL: Kathleen Hanna’s armpit hair; the first go-round of CSS (but not the second); perpetuating the myth of Atlanta’s musical high supremacy 

“Shake Shake” (previously released 7-inch)
