1."Indiana riot-grrrls Smears cut two albums of supreme amateur rock and roll that exists only to shout what is wrong with life. Peppy hooks are maimed by a total lack of musical skills. Nonetheless Love Is Fer Suckers (Cargo, 1994) and Like Hell (Cargo, 1996) have the force of true teenage statements." -http://www.scaruffi.com/
2.Two words - loud and clear. The Smears combine elements of both old and new school punk and rock along with strong melodies and inescapable hooks. Fronted by a singer/guitarist whose clear voice fills the room with the passion of her convictions, and intensified by a band as tight a straightjacket. With the release of their debut CD Asthenic Process, this band finally demonstrates that their ability to move you extends beyond their celebrated live shows. 3. The Smears are a British riot grrrl band formed in 2000 and based in Nottingham. They have released two albums - "Hell in Migh Heels" (2009) and "Dirty Protest" (2012).
