The Stuck-Ups burst out of the Seattle scene in the early 2000’s with a trashy as all hell debut LP on Sympathy for the Record Industry. Produced by Billy Childish, and featuring a blonde punkette with a faux british accent spewing out snot filled punkers that were fun, catchy, and even sometimes overtly political. There were TWO songs about sex worker rights tossed in for good measure. And you could dance to the revolution. Most of the songs dealt with bad boys and even badder girls, having a good time, bad reputations, and giving boys hard-ons. Needless to say it was in my top 10 albums the year it came out, and so the Record of the Day is The Stuck-Ups “Suicide” which is straight up 77 punk rock snot and sleaze with a blistering vocal performance from Tiffany Lee Linnes. You can almost wipe the spit and venom off your face after a listen.
