The Enemy – S/T 7″



There’s loads of US stuff being posted here I know. But what can one do when there’s so many great records coming from there?


First release by The Enemy from Washington. Thugging punk rock with piano and tasty arrangement. I like both tracks a lot. But Suzanne Grants growling in Want Me about 1:20 into the song makes me shiver with pure lust which makes it the winner.

  1. Pianos belong in bars not on records! This is so awful, I can see hordes of truckers fistbanging to it.

    “I can see hordes of truckers fistbanging to it” which makes it even better :). I rather see truckers then punks.

    And fistfuckin’ pianoplaying truckers are quite in this year.

    great description

    To those who dont think pianos belong in punk songs, what about ‘Decadent Jew’ by the Nuns? Thats one of the most rowdy sounding punk songs you’ll probably ever hear and its largely due to the crazed piano throughout the entire thing.

    Jerry Lee Lewis was punk!

  7. Mr Thrills says:

    “I Wanna be yer dog” is another…plenty of good punk songs with piano in it.

  8. SwePete says:

    Too long!!! Not even Truckers will fist along to this one.

  9. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Nice to know there’s more people out there with a short attention span :). I’m surprised that I manage to listen to the first song in it’s whole too.

  10. Phlegm says:

    good stuff. one of the best!

  11. brian h says:

    no piano on the b side. i guess some people’s attention span couldn’t last long enuff to find out?

    • The Flakes // Drummer says:

      For some that´s the case but I think there´s enough people who love this to find out.

    Our first record with Norman. Punk Fender Rhodes indeed! Recorded at Bear Creek in ’79. We woke that place up!
