"S.S. Records is very pleased to announce the debut album of SPRAY PAINT,
eleven songs of killer avant punk aggression that measures up with
anything stomping around today.
A little more than a year ago, Cory from SPRAY PAINT members contacted
S.S. and asked if they could send a few songs. Recognizing his name from
another band When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, whose psych-punkishness we
dug, S.S. said “Certainly.” Four songs came and I/we/it were blown
away. “Okay here’s the deal: We do a couple singles and then a LP,” S.S.
wrote the band and the answer was “Yes.” So 2012 saw two stellar 7”s
from the Austin trio - energy packed, off-kilter yet tuneful punk rock
& roll with a sound that brought to mind 100 Flowers, Saccharine
Trust, Wire, and S.S. vets the A Frames. During the summer SPRAY PAINT
came west to play S.S. Records second fest in San Francisco and after a
few weeks on the road they hit home and started recording this album.
I/We/Whatever heard most of the songs before SPRAY PAINT’s tour
and they were great, but gig after gig of playing them tightened them up
and brought in new ideas. When the album was done, what hit our ears is
eleven sonic booms: Great songs, ace playing, good ideas, and smart
construction. Nothing is too long, nothing too short. Like the best punk
rock & roll albums, SPRAY PAINT’s debut is all meat, no fat, a
compact punch with angular power. As noted above, weeeeee are very
SPRAY PAINT has two 7”s on S.S. Records (both out of print), had done
one Western/NW/Midwest tour and has played SXSW. Regularly gigging in
their home town, they will be playing 2013’s SXSW and later will be
hitting the roads of the Midwest (Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago, etc.).
They are currently piecing together a European tour and have plans to
hit the West again some time in the Summer.
SPRAY PAINT LP is a 500 press. Like the two 7”, the jackets have been
painted on front and stamped on the back - no two are the same." - S.S. Records
