The Buttertones' Gravedigging is more a movie waiting to happen than an album-or a soundtrack just waiting to inspire a movie, with scene after scene of action, tension, and release set to a sound that takes everything good and true about American music before the Beatles prettied it up.
It's the sort of punk energy, post-punk precision, and personality that blows the circuit-breakers at a backyard party. They started their own journey in 2011 as three music school misfits (or drinking buddies, they say) in the heart of Hollywood.
When it came time to make Gravedigging-the follow-up to a special issue 8" for Innovative, which ended up pulling them aboard the label full-time-they knew it was time to go deeper and get dirtier. It kicks off with Pistol Whip and Sadie's A Sadist, twin tales of love and crime that match outré Dangerhouse Records punk.
