The Misanthropes – Why Do You Treat Me So Bad? (1988)

Scroll down to content

Place this beast of a 45 on your turntable remembering to set the speed to 33, place the needle on the run-in groove, crank up the volume and prepare for lift off. A bendy guitar opening turns into crude snotty garage punk with attitude. The singer is full of pissed off fury. He wants to know why his girl ‘treats him so bad’ and he wants to know NOW or some cheatin’ bitch is gonna get slashed. Cue fuzz, hand claps and another cool lead guitar solo and The Misanthropes are done until you turn over the platter for the two song B-side.This is the only record The Misanthropes released so like their 60s counterparts they will be remembered as a one record, no hit wonder. They hailed from Harrisburg, PA by the way. [Source]
