The Atomic Bitchwax are the Catchiest Band in the World…

… And here’s the proof:

I know the early days with Ed Mundell get all the “where it’s at” points, but for my money, when the Bitchwax put out the four Jack Endino-produced studio tracks on Boxriff, they nailed their sound perfectly. Rawer and less poppy/mature than subsequent studio album 4, those songs took everything about predecessor 3 that was awesome and gave it a healthy dose of Jersey intensity (funny that they had to go to Seattle to do it). Note guitarist Finn Ryan‘s vocal contributions with bassist Chris Kosnik and since-departed drummer Keith Ackerman ripping it up. Great stuff.
