Louisville, KY was hardly the center of the punk rock universe in 1979, which doubtless has a lot to do with why the Endtables sounded as remarkable as they did. Formed in 1978 and gone two years later, the Endtables were four guys who clearly understood the basic rudiments of punk rock, but hadn't spent enough time obsessing over the details to let it dull their own individual personalities, and this was one band that had individual personality like nobody's business.
Trick Or Treat" is as historically important as "Nervous Breakdown" without question, the Endtables neatly sewed together detached art-punk, DIY aesthetic and Radio Birdman/Stooges buzzsawing. Brian Turner, WFMU, March 2011. VIEW ALLThe Endtables Fans.

The Endtables compiles that EP, a posthumous two-song single, and six live tracks, painting a quick, sharp portrait of a band that sounded like they were in a hurry. Chugging along at a palpitating clip, the group flies toward the sun of the Buzzcocks and Gang of Four, but something about their hyper energy makes them a little more off-kilter than those groups. Like a sonic game of Jenga, their tunes feel like they could spill into unruly cacophony at the slightest nudge. That never happens, but it's not for lack of pushing and shoving by guitarist Alex Durig and singer Steve Rigot.
