The basic idea that makes Guttermouth what they are is that everyone else in punk is far too nice and doesn’t cause enough trouble. This idea has served them well for the last ten years and they show now sign of letting up any time soon – on Eat Your Face they set about annoying everyone from trendy punks to politicised punk to newbie surfers to anyone with children (or is offended by songs about killing them) to, well, anyone who’s left.
Basically, you’re either with them or they’re against you.
It’s all done with the darkest of humour and fast, hard punk, making Guttermouth sort of like Blink 182’s unruly older brother – the one that no one invites to family functions. This is probably wise because when they’re not alienating most of the world’s population they’re singing about drinking to excess (which probably catches them a few more enemies on the way).
