While I’ve known several people who managed completely by-pass the phase, I tend to think it wasn’t too unusual for most US Punk kids in the 80’s to go through a UK82 / British Punk phase at some point in their youths—usually during the late teens or early 20’s and, amazingly, I still see kids today dressing up like bands from that era. Whatever. Personally, I went through a period of several years where I couldn’t stand the sound of this stuff, but a few years back I had a change of heart and started liking these bands again. Let’s see: a disintegrating empire, no jobs, no future, and no signs of things getting any better? I think it has finally sunk into my Yankee brain-I get it now, and the stuff these kids were ranting about back then holds some new significance to me. Aside from that, I totally would have eaten this record up as a kid—I loved this stuff and, while this seems to have come out around the tail end of the first wave, it is decent Punk schlock for the not-too-picky listener of music from this era. This comp seems to be a little less known than some of its contemporaries and therein lies the charm, as these songs haven’t been totally beaten into the ground like some of the better known records from this classic period. This is pretty much low-fi, working class, political Punk slop that doesn’t sound like Discharge or GBH—more like Chaos UK and Exploited. A fun listen if you haven’t heard this sort of stuff in a while.
I promised this to one of my loyal readers and, of course, it is my pleasure to see this sort of recording made available for general consumption. Not much else to say about this record that I haven’t already said about the other ones, although fans of Wife Swapping Swingers Orgy will be happy to hear that this one appears to be written by the same guy, with ass-eating, forced anal, and the most sexually demanding grocery store delivery boy to ever walk the face of the earth. And it’s all performed by professional-sounding, old school radio voices that don’t fit at all with the retarded dialogue. You know the drill, but who ever knew that Katharine Hepburn was so hard up for cash?
So I’m trolling eBay, looking to see if any of those smut records ever get sold on there and I find some ass-clown trying to sell this record for $80.00. Yes, $80.00! You’ve got to be fucking kidding me! Now, I know some sellers out there have no idea what they are doing, with the result that we will see some crazy prices from time to time and it is my earnest, heart-felt hope that this is the case with this record. PLEEEEEAAAAASE let it be the case!!!!! If not, then record collecting has truly hit a new low, as this disc is one of the most uninteresting, no-talent, pieces of shit I have ever heard! Any jerk could have made this thing in his sleep. Seriously, this record is so stupid it’s not even funny unless, of course, you’re idea of “funny” is people being annoyed by dumbass novelty records that are so stupid they aren’t even funny, in which case the record would, indeed, be technically “funny”, but you’d be a jerk.
You can take my word for it that the only reason I am even posting this is in the hopes that some fool who is actually considering blowing $80.00 on this piece of tripe will do a search and find this post. Then, after realizing that this record is, in fact, lame crap, he will do the right thing and blow his $80.00 on a bag of rock or a couple fat chunks of glass.
Oh, yes, and if memory serves, I paid $1.99 for this piece of shit—and felt cheated!!
I bought this record at the same time as the above record and, like the above record, paid $1.99 for it. So what do you think this thing is worth now? Well, considering it sucks even worse than the other one, I’d have to guess $100.00! Obviously, I’m all about the dumbass novelty records, but this stuff is just lame.
I have to admit this is kind of a lame post, seeing as this is a bootleg and all, but last I checked this disc wasn’t exactly a household name and, until that happens, not enough attention can be given to this masterpiece. Actually, I ran across it while I was trying to find those two lame records I posted above and I just can’t resist putting it up since it’s so damn good! For some reason the picture on the back cover wound up on the front of that “Live To Ride” comp, but were these guys really Metal? They sort of look it, but this sounds pretty Punk to me. If fact, it’s Poopy Punk, and it simply doesn’t get any more righteous than “Boss Man”, a killer track to be sure, to which we can all relate—unfortunately. The flip is great stuff, as well.
So just get a look at these Punk freaks, will you? You know, I really get tired of saying things like “they just don’t make ‘em like that anymore” but, damn, they sure don’t! What the hell happened? As undoubtedly at least a couple of the guys from this outfit are still among the living somewhere, maybe we can clone their DNA in the hopes of maybe hearing some decent music again in another 18 or 20 years. I just can’t see the current crop of sissies breeding anything but more of the same!

All the old posts have now been switched over to MediaFire and the site is, once again, fully functional. Let’s see how long this lasts, shall we? I have to admit my confidence in MediaFire could be a little higher, but I’ll give them a chance. And am I the only one who has trouble with their multi-uploader? It rarely works and you have to upload one file at a time, hovering over the site until it goes through. To compound the problem, the nearest high speed internet connection I have is a gas station on the edge of the nearest town with minimal heat and stinks of fried pork tenderloin and potato wedges. So here I am, stinking of pork tenderloins and potato wedges, and what the hell have you clowns done for me? Nuthin’!
Oh, and I did some long-overdue site maintenance while I was waiting and stinking. Basically, I added some new categories to aid in site navigation. Now, you can get all the Mentors and El Duce posts at the click of a mouse and I did the same with a couple other bands and genres. I have also received a couple requests in the past to put together a list of some of the top retard and fake Punk releases. Well, I’m not sure if I can really comply with such a request but, as far as this site goes, I added the categories of Poopy Punk and Poopy Rock that, while containing some legitimate releases, tends to gravitate more towards the bands and artists who went the extra mile in general dumbassitude and crapola. Not that most of this stuff isn’t stupid, mind you! I have some new posts in the works and should have them up by then end of the week.
