Product Description

BBC Review

The fairly unsavoury moniker of this band might strike many as the stuff of career suicide. Yet the very notion of music as a career was never an option for the mighty Pissed Jeans.

This Pennsylvania band has at its heart a bizarre paradox. The monolith of malevolence that constitutes their fourth album Honeys was in fact made by a bunch of chaps with respectable office jobs, all of whom have become fathers since 2009’s King of Jeans.

Yet one thing amidst all this is certain. Honeys, for all those craving old-fashioned noise rock imbued with acidic intent and an aura of relentless unpleasantness, is the genuine article.

Pissed Jeans have always understood that making this kind of depraved racket is matter of embracing the unhinged and the unclean to potentially dangerous levels.

It’s a matter of provoking just as many concerned as confused faces in any audience you confront – faces lost in giddy rock rapture.

Moreover, Honeys is no mere Black Flag, Flipper or Jesus Lizard worship, and it's here that this band triumphs where similar contemporaries like Dope Body and the distressingly ersatz Blacklisters fail.

The deadpan, snail's-pace swagger of Cafeteria Food, the freewheeling death ride of Health Plan and the lurching, zombified glam stomp of the puzzlingly-titled Loubs are possessed of a uniquely deranged air all Pissed Jeans' own.

This is the stuff of vicious hangovers, unkempt hair being head-banged back and forth furiously, and eyebrow-raising debacles on public transport.

Who's to say whether this is the id of these responsible citizens running rampant, or whether spurious notions of authenticity have any more place in the arena of noise rock than they do at a presidential inauguration.

All we know at this stage is that Pissed Jeans, this twisted, wilfully perverse abomination of a band, make a noise that blurs boundaries of ugly and beautiful in poleaxing style. And long may they stare into this particular abyss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Subversive Pop 25 Feb 2013
By Gannon
Format:Audio CD
Ever since Sub Pop snagged the snarling METZ debut last year a popular tagline has been doing the rounds that they were the first band that sounded truly at home on the iconic label for some time. Pity then the forgotten majesty of Pennsylvania four-piece Pissed Jeans, who have been turning in tailor-made hardcore sludge for what is approaching a decade. Honeys is now their third long-player for Sub Pop and fourth overall, and from the off it's clear that time is no healer when it comes to the band's raw noise.

Yet, despite the white-knuckle pace of "Bathroom Laughter", its tortured bass and Matt "Korvette" Kosloff`s G-force gargle, Pissed Jeans are a band heading in two directions at once whilst retaining their nauseous core all the same. The paranoid "Chain Worker", for example, though still channelling the teeth-clenched spirit of Big Black and Jesus Lizard, markedly reduces its pace to an evil and creepy prowl. "Cafeteria Food" too is a real drudge with an almost dead, near-spoken vocal stream.

On the other hand, you have the caustic "Vain In Costume", which is - dare we say it - relatively catchy, even though it remains akin to being repeatedly hit in the face by literal Rocket(s) From The Crypt. It's not the only one either - the bluesy "Loubs" performs a similar trick beneath Randy Huth`s fearsome chainsaw-bass stomp.

Fear not though, for it's business as usual most elsewhere. "Cathouse" is a frenetic barrage of guitar and angst from which Bradley Fry manages to rip a strangled solo, and he's got another up his sleeve during the pyroclastic flow of fists and teeth that is "Health Plan" - an otherwise hell-for-leather portrait of modern American disillusionment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honeys 20 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
This album is dirty. The amount of fuzzy bass, pounding drums and deep vocals is great. The album opens with "Bathroom Laughter", and it really represents the album as a whole. The sound of tortured bass opening this album feels so good and aggressive, it's all so enjoyable, even if this band, with a name like Pissed Jeans, aren't the most serious of bands.

"Chain Worker" follows in suit of "Bathroom Laughter" with another strong song starting with a brief frenzy of blast beats before going into a, almost drone like bass line plodding along in an hypnotic Punk state. The three songs that follow keep the listener enjoyed and move things along well without feeling the sense of too much repetition. Track six, is "Cafeteria Food" and feels like "Chain Worker", but has a gloomier sound that reminds me of Joy Division, the song works really well and following it up is, "Something About Mrs Johnson", which doesn't really do anything. I don't know why the song is there, it's nothing really.

"Male Gaze" is strong, and "Cathouse" sounds like old-school Hardcore Punk, with gravel vocals that feature on a few songs. "Health Plan" is fast and humorous with the song lyrics "You want to know my secret? I stay away from Doctors." The last song on the album, "Teenage Adult" feel slightly underwhelming to finish off the album, but I'll settle it.

I don't think Pissed Jeans have anything revolutionary here with Honeys, but it is good enjoyable Punk music that you can head band to again and again and play the it as loud as you like. For the whole length of the album I never really feel bored, it moves on nicely keeping a flow of energy throughout. There is enough on here for me to forget about it maybe getting slightly samey but when you think that may be happening, "Cafeteria Food" comes along, and so does "Cathouse" and "Health Plan".

7.5/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential. 19 Feb 2013
By Joshua Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pissed Jeans are the finest of the noise makers on the Sub Pop label, no offense meant to Mudhoney (still making golden records). Honeys is a magnificent follow up to the epic King of Jeans. Honeys finds the 4some experimenting with sounds that could have been lifted from Flipper or Black Flag. Brad Fry has really outdone himself, matching Greg Ginn chop for chop, and Matt Korvette's lyrics rage against the mundane existence of cube dwelling, the every day monotony of a working life we all must succumb to in order to pay the mortgage. Whether ranting about 'Cafeteria Food,' or fearing ending up living like an old maid in a 'Cat House,' Pissed Jeans make navigating the scuzzy bureaucracy of everyday life a little more bearable. This is grand stuff and I for one can't get enough of 'Teenage Adult,' the final track and in my opinion high water mark, not only for Honeys, but for Pissed Jeans. Honeys is an essential listen and front-runner for my favorite album of 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like hardcore and early grunge, this is for you 15 Feb 2013
By B. G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If I had to describe this album, I'd have to say that it takes 80s hardcore, 90s hardcore, early grunge, throws them in a blender, hits puree, and then seasons it with a dash of stoner rock. It yields this very original(and incredibly addictive) blend. I've listened to "Honeys" now about a dozen times and finally decided to take the plunge and purchase it. It's just too damn good.

Highlights: every track, really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer wax 17 Feb 2013
By enoch perrywinkle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
This is an awesome lo-fi hardcore gem!
In respect to the band if your here you already know Pissed Jeans. What I want to talk about is the vinyl release. Too many times these days bands are recording digitally and just dropping that digital information right on vinyl.
This sort of makes the whole effort of releasing the music on an Lp pointless.
I'd like to say these guys have done an amazing job with this one. The vinyl is dead quiet when it's supposed to be (they don't really leave much room between tracks anyway) and clear and true the rest of the time.
It's a great record and well worth it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Horribly Catchy Angst Ridden Old School Harcore 30 May 2013
By Scott Rosenbluth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So the year obviously is 2013 but listening to this it may as well be 1980. When punk stopped trying to be so super poppy and push itself onto the public's consciousness, bands like Black Flag, The Adolescents, and The Germs decided there was art in imperfection and humanity in flaw. This sort of recording really died a horrible death around the mid-nineties when crystalline production techniques almost swept that sound out of the public's mind for good. Thank god there are still labels like Matador and bands like Pissed Jeans to remind us all that there is something pure driving their musical aspirations. Every song has something catchy or redeeming about it, with excellent axe-manship and better than most lyrics and vocals. If you weren't told, you would swear this was some obscure punk band from the 80's with a close kinship to the L.A. scene. I didn't really have any intentions or expectations when I bought this album and I now listen to it three times a week for sheer raw energy and hooky punk rock goodness. This is not only great to fill a void left 33 years prior however, this satisfies a very primal need in musical taste. I said to a friend recently, "Wow, an old school punk rock tune now sounds universally timeless". She agreed.
