Brief mention: punk band name news

Found by accident, the punk band Pissed Jeans:

Pissed Jeans are an American noise rock/hardcore punk band from Allentown, Pennsylvania. [AZ side note: I was born in Allentown PA.] The band claims to play “loud, heavy, noisy, punk rock” and is influenced by 1980s hardcore punk and post-hardcore bands. The band have released several 7″ singles and four albums, and are currently signed to Sub Pop.

The members of Pissed Jeans all attended Nazareth High School and initially planned to use the name Unrequited Hard-On before settling on Pissed Jeans. As [band member] Matt Kosloff explains,

The idea was to start a different kinda Punk band focused on dead ended carnal cravings, sexual depression … that sort of thing. Mainly we just wanted to bludgeon the listener will dull, monotonous droning rock music that just sucks the energy out of you, the musical equivalent to watching a toilet flush.

The attractions of vulgarity never pale.

(If you’re looking for actual pissed jeans — the are lots of images and videos on the net — you’ll need to find indirect ways to call up the stuff or be willing to wade through pages and pages of refereces to the band.)
