With their angular guitars, confrontational vocals, and all around punk rock abrasives that are mature and melodic at the same time, Longstocking were definitely overlooked while Sleater-Kinney and Bikini Kill could have been found on every single magazine cover. Although they're not as angry and complex as their contemporaries, Longstocking's debut EP features a poppy but heavier guitar crunch that probably came across a lot better live than in the studio. Not bad, but not as good as their 1997 single on K Records.
