“The Auckland-based punk act only know one way forward – full throttle” – NZ Herald

“Shitripper is thrashy, loud, abrasive loose and rugged – just as it should be” – Rip It Up (NZ)

“Shitripper are quickly maturing from a fun, trashy act to one of the tightest, most ferocious bands in the country. Brain Defect is the clearest indication yet of that. A bristling, powerful release” – punkas.com

“Anti-establishment themes and a blistering pace throughout the thirteen-tracks cover all the thrashcore bases while musical depth and fantastic production will keep you coming back for more. However the music isn’t all you get with this release, it’s accompanied by an awesome twenty-page booklet of lyrics and artwork well worth checking out. If you like your punk music fast and without compromise, Shitripper's latest release Brain Defect is the CD for you.” – nzmusic.net

Lyrics

Brain Defect

Written By: Shitripper

Walk the path of most resistance headed in the wrong direction What the fuck did I expect Idiot Keep going back for more I’m not getting smarter Pushing things beyond repair eating shit again Guess I haven’t got it yet Must have rocks in my head Don’t know when to quit must have rocks in my head Yeah I did this to myself examining my mental health My own worst enemy I can’t Stop going back for more I must be retarded Defiant to no avail set up to fail Guess I haven’t got it yet must have rocks in my head Don’t know when to quit must have rocks in my head I’ve got rocks in my head I’ve got rocks damaged

Count Me Out

Written By: Shitripper

I'm setting you straight we're not one and the same Got to set you straight Once and for all I won't tolerate what’s rearing Its ugly head I'm sick of hearing the talk back truth You're anti me well I'm anti you Regurgitate old attitudes you're not saying what I'm thinking Claim all the things that make us stick Break all the pieces that don’t fit If this is us Count me out

Four Walls

Written By: Shitripper

Four walls locked up tight lost the key Four walls now nothing can get at me Four walls bury my head so I don’t look Four walls Fuck Easily distracted by the blur of everyday Lacking direction and the hate won’t go away Got no solutions to any of this mess To many targets just a scatter effect Four walls locked up tight lost the key Four walls now no one can get at me Four walls bury my head so I can’t look Should I be making bombs should I be throwing bricks No focus for my anger so I settle for a quick fix World beyond repair there’s no turning back To many targets just a scatter effect I’m hiding out behind these four wall I’m laming out behind Four walls locked up tight lost the key Four walls now nothing can get to me Four walls bury my head so I can’t look Four walls FUCK
