[PUNK NEUROSIS] Seattle’s Wimps have a song called “Stop Having Fun,” but I sense it’s meant to be taken ironically, because there’s little about the band that indicates it’s truly against having a good time. Comprising ex-members of Portland noise folkies Meth Teeth and Emerald City post-punks the Intelligence, the group could be described as frustrated and possibly neurotic, but there’s no way it could be mistaken for boring or joyless. The guitars—not quite fully in tune—saw through crashing, off-center rhythms that alternately churn and rage over Rachel Ratner’s agitated riot-grrrl hollering. It’s addictive stuff, and there’s no way you can stand still while it’s being performed.
