For those already familiar with the organized chaos that is No Redeeming Social Value Still Drinking is another shining example of why these merry purveyors of debauchery have been a scene favorite for over 15 years. Starting strong with their CLASSIC “Pussy, Pussy, Pussy” the album is a riotous often anthemic ode to their love of drinking, particularly OE. About half if not more of the album has at some point a reference to one of America’s favorite pastimes. But if drinking is not your thing or perhaps you’re in AA fret not there are a few ditties that are on the wagon, “Don’t Fuck With My Pooch” and “FuckKillEat” to name two. Don’t be fooled by the titles, these are not songs that have any profound lyrics, they are straight to the point, good ol fashioned cheeky humor that everyone can have fun too. There’s a lovely tribute to the passing of punk rock legend Joey Ramone in “The King is Dead” filled with Ramones references. On “My Life Suxx” there’s even a hint, dare we say a sparing touch of King Diamond to make even the hardest of hardcore fans crack a smile. And understanding the rise of digital media and dwindling of CD sales Still Drinking is loaded with extras, 4 bonus songs and 3 bonus videos giving you more bang for your buck.
Special mention has to be given to the off kilter “Dark Fun Party” which kinda sounds like a cross between new Bloodhound Gang and Gunther (if you know the above music then you’ll know EXACTLY what the song sounds like) if not think back to SNL’s Hans and Franz set to Euro trash techno… utter brilliance.
Special special mention: we here at Noise have discovered a very fun drinking game to play to Still Drinking. Every time you hear OE, beer or any other drinking reference while listening to the album you chug your OE, we guarantee you’ll be shit-faced by albums end.
