Description:

Second album from Athens, GA four-piece: scientific, cubist, disco-punk for fans of Mclusky, The Melvins, Fugazi, Brainiac and Les Savy Fav.

Additional Information:

Drawing from the likes of Mclusky and The Melvins for inspiration, Dirty Versions is a compact and immediate record – the album was recorded as live, in just two days. We Versus the Shark was conceived in 2003; originally bonding over a mutual love of DC-based bands like the Dismemberment Plan, Q and Not U, and Fugazi.

Their full-length debut Ruin Everything! followed in 2005 wowing audiences and critics alike in their native US. If ever a band deserved the label ‘angular’ it’s this one - Shark's guitar patterns are fraught with blunt edges and sharp corners. Dirty Versions is disjointed disco-punk at its best – gloriously fragmented riffs that one can’t resist dancing to.

Press:

Rock Sound: "WVTS offer twiddling, fiddling, off kilter experimentation. Bold basslines and hip-shaking beats mesh with vocal distortion and an appetite for something a bit different. Remiscent of Pretty Girls Make Graves brawling with Piebald over bass guitars, this Athens Georgia quartet are worthy of further investigation." 8/10
