Formed in Huntington Beach, California in 1988, Guttermouth was heavily influenced by the Southern California punk rock scenes of the 1980s which spawned bands such as the Adolescents, The Vandals, Social Distortion, Fear, Descendents, Angry Samoans, Bad Religion and Black Flag. The band took these influences and developed their own style of fast, punk tempos with humorously sarcastic and offensive lyrics coupled with equally outrageous and offensive behavior, developing a reputation for chaotic live shows.
“This zesty recording captures the true essence of the Guttermouth “LIVE” show with all the debauchery one has come to expect for these clowns… or us. Two brand new studio tracks are also included within Guttermouth’s magnum opus
The new record is the perfect blend of what the California-based punk rock band is all about, an unmissable collection for die-hard fans, a great way to discover one of the seminal bands in the US skate-punk scene. It is surely a must-have for all the lovers of speedy riffs, ‘stuck-in-the-head’ choruses and outrageous humorous and sarcastic lyrics.
