Dipers – Demo tape
New hardcore band from Brooklyn, this is the first release on Eat the Life Records, the new label from the dude behind the awesome Frankenjew Records. The label described this as being like “early Descendents, but a little harder”, and I can totally agree with that. These four songs are goofy, with subjects of bed bugs, lighting your farts, a moshing dog, and having dirty shoes; but the shtick doesn't wear off quickly like it might for most “funny” bands, because while the lyrics are funny, Dipers have the tunes to back them up. Catchy stuff, great lyrics, and every song has its own unique sonic identity. I think the last song, Dirty Shoes, is the best, the drums thump and the bass grooves like no other. Get this if you're not afraid of lightening up.

We're sold out but Eat The Life may still have copies if interested. Or can download from this blog or Terminal Escape. Or both.
Raucous and feisty garage punks from New York City (and the name is pronounced "Die-Pers," just like the Portland band whose logo they are borrowing, but with a 'D' on the front end) deliver four tunes that are as full of don't-give-a-fuck juice as they are with killer riffs and punk songwriting sensibilities. After a couple of passively solicited cassettes received through the mail (passively in the sense that I didn't ask, and solicited in the sense that I always want more tapes) and enjoyed while drinking, I had the pleasure of meeting The Head Diper in Brooklyn at the OPT OUT show - he was appropriately awkward and properly enthusiastic and not even remotely cool (at least not intentionally)...which of course made him just about the coolest dude in the room. These songs don't care if you like them, but you nothing short of a fool if you don't recognize the casual genius contained in these seven minutes - it's like SOCKEYE took the time to write the great raw hardcore record we always knew they had in them, but without sacrificing any of their wit. Get ready for "Dog Mosh."
