Forming in 2012, Spray Paint immediately unleashed two stellar 7″s on Sacramento’s S-S Records which sold out instantly. In 2013 they released TWO albums (S-S Records again) that outshone most, and we were fortunate to catch them live on three occasions that year, which included their standout set at Gonerfest 10 in Memphis, Sept ’13.
Having just completed a massive tour of Europe last November, in support of the release of third album Clean Blood, Regular Acid (Monofonus Press), Homeless is royally stoked to be releasing the fourth album by Spray Paint – PUNTERS ON A BARGE – available June 1st.
Described variously at times as “no wave”, “paranoid art punk” or “atonal throb”, their minimalist style and penchant for obscure, foreboding lyrics, combined with oddly tuned guitars and a three-pinned vocal assault make for an exhilarating ride.
Spray Paint are Cory Plump (gtr, vocals), George Dishner (gtr, vocals), and Chris Stephenson (drums, vocals).

Reviews of Punters On A Barge
“Punters On A Barge is their fourth album, presumably a one-off for Melbourne label Homeless Records to coincide with an Australian tour, but it’s also their best one yet by far, the earlier warmups rushing forth in a full-on sprint. A lot of modern punk bands use no wave as sort of an alienating device, and Spray Paint are no different, but the reps they get going this time are more reminiscent of the wall of dissonance kicked forth by Branca’s ensemble circa The Ascension, a noble feat in a coterie of bands that think just having someone yelp like Lydia Lunch or wank off on a synthesizer will get them the edge they need.”
