Neutrals - Rent/Your House EP
Neutrals are a trio from the San Francisco Bay Area, owing as much to the direct, tightly-wound edge of Wire-schooled post-punk as the proto-C86 melancholic jangle of bands like the Television Personalities. The Rent/Your House EP is their second vinyl release, after their 2019 debut LP Kebab Disco on Emotional Response Records.
In protest at the current administration's treatment of immigrants & refugees, and at the growing threat of fascism throughout the world, the EP includes a cover of "Hitler's In the Charts Again," a 1981 B-side by Scottish punk band the Exploited. Guitarist/vocalist Allan McNaughton says: "I finally became a US citizen last year. As an immigrant, my situation in the US always felt somewhat tenuous, but now that my status is more secure I feel safer using my voice to speak out in support of those with less privilege."
