Pop punk wasn't always a dirty word (or a dirty combination of words), and I still turn happily to many feisty, energetic and fukkn punk bands form the '90s that fell into that category. VAGINAL BLOOD FARTS play hardcore with hooks, JERK dish out poppier punk all snotty and dirty, and both bands have the power to validate your anger and frustration while giving you something to sing along to (even if it's just "I Hate Bad Religion").  This tape came out in 1993, before VBF members moved on to form the excellent garage punk outfit CHINESE LOVE BEADS and the nucleus of JERK started AT THE DRIVE IN.
