Diarrhea Planet are a garage punk band simple as that. The band make a raucous noise that fits neatly into that basic genre with hints of pop in its structures.
Everything is overdriven and sounds like it is on the verge of falling apart any second. The guitars are catchy but nowhere close to clean sounding. The vocals are snotty and unhinged throughout.
The songs are short and fun. The problem that i find is there is very little to make anything stand out. Would this band be out of place on say, In The Red Records, not at all. Sadly even though they seem as though they would fit comfortably in that niche there is nothing that is making them special either. Each song has little things that give them a little extra fun this is namely in the sing alongs. While this would contribute to a drunken good time in the live setting it does little to help the overall value of the EP. Simply put, while this is a likable and somewhat fun piece of vinyl there is little to make one keep coming back on a regular basis. Come back in a year and maybe this band will become the next great garage band.
