12 O'Clock Track: The 90s garage-punk of San Fran's the Rip Offs

The namesake of Greg Lowery's Rip Off Records—the San Francisco garage-punk label that was unstoppable for a stretch in the 90s, releasing cuts by Teengenerate, the Reds, and more—the Rip Offs also happened to be one of Lowery's bands, and their sole full-length, 1994's Got a Record, is chock-full of dirty, treble-loaded lo-fi winners. Today's 12 O'Clock Track, "She Said Yeah," is a raw and simple minute and a half about a girl's cheating ways. Fun, snotty punk rock with a 40-ounce in hand.

And here's a video of the Rip Offs playing the Fireside in 1995, signature stocking masks in place.
