The Shit



In 1990 two of the Bay Area's best punk bands got together and released a split so offensive and disrespectful that it reach legendary status. The Shit Split, a 12'' LP featuring Blatz on one side and Filth on the other, was originally released on Lookout! records. Blatz and Filth were born out of the East Bay scene at 924 Gilman, which is longest operating DIY venue in the United States. 924 Gilman was also the birth place of notable bands such as Operation Ivy, Rancid, and Fugazi.
Put this noisy and chaotic split on while drinking with your friends and soon you'll be screaming "tonight we're gonna fuck shit up," and reveling in the genius of Blatz's cover of Fear's "I Don't Care About You." I've been disappointed lately because a lot of my friends have never heard this punk rock milestone, so no fucking excuses, download this shit!
