The Humpers Euphoria, Confusion, Anger and Remorse

This review was originally published in 1998 in issue 13 of Married Punks

The Humpers Euphoria, Confusion, Anger and Remorse

The Humpers have a song called "Fast, Fucked and Furious" off Live Forever or Die Trying.  That sums up this band quite well.  This new CD is pure, non-political, garage, beer-fueled music.  From the brutal "Steel-toed Sneakers" to "Fistful of Zen," this kicks much butt.

As with the New Bomb Turks, The Humpers' music is sexually active beat work ("Fucking Secretaries" is grand), without being overtly sexual (with the exception of the aforementioned song).  The organ and sax only add to that sexual feeling, too.

The Humpers haven't disappointed in some time.  It may never.  Who knows?  Who cares?  Just sit back and enjoy the fuckin' ride.
