The Cutters: D.C. Needs This More Than Houston

The Cutters release debut album, ram knife through D.C.'s heart.

D.C. punk band The Points defiled serious punk rock in the nation's capital. Frontman Geo (George White) spat beer on his audience. He wrote hooky songs about girls, and how they suck. Following years of Dischord rock music built on questioning the rules—about society, social strata, and sincere things like that—The Points declared a ban on the rules of punk rock.  (Quite directly, in the song "Rock n Roll, No Rules.")

Now, White has a new band based in Houston, Texas, where punk doesn't really need his help. Nevertheless, White, who still lives in D.C., should be commended for his message control. On their new eight-song release on Sinkhole Texas, The Cutters—White's fivesome including members of Talk Sick Brats, Cop Warmth, and others—stick to the basics: chicks, shit that sucks, drugs, and apathy.  It's an ass-kicking debut, and available, naturally, through Dischord distro.
