[PUNK] Erik Anarchy is the nom de punk of Erik Stephen Griffiths, a mildly autistic kid in his early 20s who started his nascent \"career\" in Portland five years ago, playing charmingly rambly solo songs with titles like \"Fuck the OLCC\" and \"I Wanna Piss on the White House,\" built upon mostly incidental electric guitar and Griffiths\' snotty, faux-British accent. He\'s since added bass accompaniment to his live shows, but not much else has changed. This year, Anarchy released Stupid Things, Evil Things and Lies, a 23-track collection covering a wide array of subjects—including the First Amendment (\"Censorship Is Un-American\"), religious hypocrisy (\"The Most Pious Are the Worst Offenders\"), H.P. Lovecraft (\"Watch Out for Cthulu\"), the inanity of Twilight (\"I Remember When Vampires Sucked Blood\"), American obesity (\"Who Let Shamu on the Bus\") and Ron Jeremy (\"Ron Jeremy\")—with a directness that verges dangerously close to Wesley Willis territory, but Anarchy seems self-aware enough that there\'s no need to feel guilty for finding it amusing.
