Their only good album, in my opinion,since I don't think
they knew how to record or anything. All of the songs are
recorded in the red, and well, that sound and style works.
I don't dig their later albums for the shock value, or anything so
stupid like having dwarves covered with blood on your new album
sleeve. Whatever. So what? Where's the music?
And I don't think doing a live set that last like 24 minutes is
really that cool either. And then dropping your mics,and instruments
on the floor after your set is that punky anymore either. Yawn.
But I do think this album actually has artistic merit.
This originally came out in 1985, on that wonderful Voxx Records label,
and I don't think anyone can really do "I'm A Living Sickness"
(that's a 60's garage song) better than these guys can.
Now that was a statement when I heard them do that song.
See for yourself.
