Judy and the Jerks are a band who champion the weird and the grotesque. Trash, slugs, cyclops, goblins and lard are just a few song subjects for their fast, fun and frenetic hardcore punk.
The Mississippi four-piece put an emphasis on enjoyment, doing their best to leave you breathless with most of their songs clocking in at around less than one and a half minutes. Pitchfork said: “their music splatters like mashed potatoes against concrete walls; it squirts like a flattened plastic ketchup bottle. There are brief pauses where a bassline flutters alone, as if reloading a spork and preparing for further warfare.” The live show is sure to be a messy but uplifting affair.
