Album Notes
Pissing Contest is a four-piece punk band from Richmond, VA specializing in raucous, idiosyncratic slop-shred and socio-scatalogical commentary.

The Pissing Contest mantle dates back to the murky pre-history of 2011, born of the friendship between frontman-bandleader Jean-Baptiste Stowell and the late great Richmond rapper Joe Threat, given name Joe Davis. Stowell, previously recording under the name Aeon Yahweh, selected a hardcore punk style to suit Joe's vocal range, and the two set about writing songs and cutting demos with titles like "Poster Child" and "Insect Inside Us All."

Following Joe's passing in 2013, Stowell enlisted mutual friends Justin Lewis (owner-operator of Attic Boy Records and now production manager at the Broadberry) and David Long (guitarist for Sammi Lanzetta and formerly of Hot Reader) to memorialize Joe with a handful of proper Pissing Contest recordings. The concept expanded over the next two years as the trio wrote new material and added drummer Ben Padgett (Roma). In 2015 the private project became public with a string of shows and the release of "Pissing Contest Shits the Hits," an 11-song, 18-minute album that tested the very definition of "LP." The closing track "Syd Ryfus Was Raw" speaks to the bands origins and the loss of Joe Threat, eulogizing him under the punk pseudonym he created for the project.

In subsequent years Pissing Contest has blipped in and out of the local punk scene and beyond, playing everywhere from dives and basements to First Fridays at Gallery5. Padgett exited the band to pursue luthier school and was replaced by drummer Sage Maxwell (Lounge Lizzards, Skumboyz). Through it all they have maintained a small cult following of true believers, sometimes lovingly referred to as "Pee-ons" or "Piss-ants," who cite the band's live energy, offbeat musicality, and comedic riffage as the key ingredients of their appeal.

On may 2nd, 2019, the foursome release their follow-up album "The Fountain," a sonic and structural leap forward that furthers the aesthetic of toilet-humor existentialism and stupid-short songwriting that pushes the boundaries of the punk idiom.
