Mia Zapata was a legend long before the unspeakable crime that so cruelly ended her life in 1993. NME once described her band, The Gits, as being like Billy Holiday meets the Sex Pistols" and that does approximate the noisy punk-soul sound they concocted.
This early, Bugs Bunny referencing record came out on Empty Records in 1991 and I've never considered selling my copy.These two tracks, "Twisting, Breathing" and especially "Spear and Magic Helmet" show off the American hardcore roots of the band.
