Quality Post Punk

markco1

I bought this on the reviews and was not disappointed. The band has a loose garage post punk sound. Heavily driven by drums and bass you can hear influences of Chrissie Hynde and Polvo. On the great tracks the band is pretty tight on others the drummer, who changes the rhythm quiet often, sometimes looses the beat. I do not play drums but what she is attempting sounds complicated. At these points the band sounds a bit jumbled but they often pull it back in line. Even with this fault, that some may love, I continue to enjoy this LP.

this is ESSENTIAL

neurons

if Wire were fronted by Chrissie Hynde they might be about as good. MIGHT. Throw in Minutemen quality songwriting and Sleater-Kinney chic. THIS IS DEFINITELY A MUST HAVE.

90s indie rock that shouldn't be forgotten

NoelZevon

With their emotional vulnerability and garage swagger, Slant 6 recalls Chrissie Hynde fronting an early version of the Wipers. "Inzombia" is justifiably lauded, but this is the record where their awesome sound came together. This is the kind of album that makes you want to start a band.

The Story of Slant 6, Washington D.C.’s Best Little-Known Punk Band

By Jason Schreurs, Contributor

Slant 6 played their first show in the summer of 1992 as a late-night dare among roommates. During what is now considered the heyday of the Washington, D.C., post-hardcore scene, Christina Billotte, Myra Power and Steve Gamboa — all residents of the now-infamous Embassy House — began a three-year musical whirlwind that provided the Capital City with a sinewy, serpentine twist on a classic garage-punk sound. In June of 1992, Gamboa, then the bass player in… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Slant 6 got their start in the Washington D.C. scene, where small labels like Dischord, Simple Machines, and Teenbeat relied more on the distribution of vinyl singles than full-scale albums. Soda Pop Rip Off is the sort of album one might expect from such scenes, collecting previous singles and separate recordings; as a result, it’s not the sort of album that works as a whole. The band’s sound, however, is both innovative and exciting, combining new-wave punk, D.C. hardcore, and almost creepily frantic guitar work into an energizing rush of sound that resembles more well-known groups like Sleater-Kinney and Bikini Kill. In all, Soda Pop Rip Off works almost like a retrospective of a period in the band’s career, collecting major work (including great tracks like “Double Edged Knife” and “What Kind of Monster Are You?”) — those looking for a more album-oriented release should look to Inzombia. – Nitsuh Abebe
