Stinko's Ranch was preceded by this six-song ep, some six years earlier. If you cared at all for the aforementioned disk, you'll likely want this. At this stage in their career (a poorly documented one unfortunately) The Mutts hadn't quite absorbed enough Replacements yet for Paul Westerberg & Co. to be a prevalent influence, but a panache for muscular power-pop had nonetheless permeated the quintet's collective DNA. "Boys of One Side (Girls on the Other Side)" gleams with shades of Tommy Keane, and while the remainder of the ep doesn't necessarily follow suit, it's fairly compelling (though if they had nixed the ghoulish, rockabilly-inflected "Just Another Halloween," this platter would've been just as effective, perhaps even more so). Kick out this jam.
