Graffiti Monsters

Fox Grapes b/w Polar Bear

Self Released [2012]

If there's one thing I love almost as much as my records, it's my 8-bit video game collection. Graffiti Monsters takes their love for 8-bit gaming and spazzy punk rock, puts them together and gives us this two song gem. The title track stands out a little more than the b-side, but I think it's because of one of the sounds they use reminds me of a gameboy game called Motocross Maniacs (basically the more fun Gameboy version of the NES classic, Excitebike). Be it bitcore, chipcore, 8bitHC, NES Core, or whatever the kids are calling it these days, after hearing this you might feel an overwhelming urge to shoplift a two-liter of Mountain Dew and stay up all night.
