Swallowing Shit – Review

Swallowing Shit

(G-7 Welcoming Committe)
by Scott Hefflon

Surprising coming from the label that brought us Randy (who rule!), Propagandhi, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, and The Weakerthans. Swallowing Shit is Anal Cunt, basically. I mean, maybe there are other bands like this, but dropping A.C. will probably get the idea across… While a few of the songs butt-crack a minute, most are 30 seconds of blasted hate, similar to sticking your face in a furnace for as long as you can stand it. Song titles include “Lyrics That May Offend the Honkys,” “Burn Winnipeg to the Fucking Ground,” “If Asshole Could Fly, This Place Would be an Airport,” and “I Heard Songs About Animal Rights Aren’t Cool Anymore.” Funny, seeing as the bassist is now in Propagandhi…
