"An all-instrumental recording for those assholes who don't like the way we sing," claims the cover of Shut the Fuck Up! And while some may miss the dual vocal attack of Dave Crider and John Mortensen, you can't go wrong with the cagey stomp of "WRECKER!" or the sloppy pop of "Little Miss 3-B." And, while The Mono Men originals are done with characteristic recklessness, covers of Dick Dale's "Mr. Eliminator" and Link Wray's "Switchblade" and "Rumble" drag, sapping energy from the entire exuberant project.
