When's the last time you gave the Violent Femmes self-titled 1983 album a listen? Its jittery, unstable songs hold up remarkably well--and not just the oft-covered soundtrack staple "Blister In The Sun." Here, the California-based punk band Ceremony offers up a faithful rendition of "Kiss Off," a.k.a. that one Femmes' song with the counting. Ceremony's latest album is Zoo; it's their first for Matador, and a continuation of the band's shift from punk-indebted to post-punk-indebted. Enjoy.
