Assassins 88 - Go Go Second Chance Virgin
Assassins 88 seem to write a lot of anthems about sex for kids pushing their pals around in empty supermarket carts in empty supermarket parking lots, walking stoned/bleary-eyed into the sterile brightness of a service station at 3am to buy a pie a Pepsi and a jumbo bag of Burger Rings. It's definitely a sound borne of suburban boredom and I believe they're from Canberra, Australia which my friend once described as a "dead conservative hellhole", but at least these dudes are there to fuck some shit up. The duo keep it simple with bass & drums, no super proficient Lightning Bolts or boring blues rock, just super catchy and a whole lot more chill than other lo-fi punx. This is young & dumb and pumping with hormones and cheap beer, plus "Age of Consent" opens with a creepy sample from Dazed and Confused, perfect.
