GAWKER'S PARADISE 7" EP
03. Sun Goes Down
04. On the Waterfront
Label: Touch & Go Records
Cat #: TG-13
Format: 7" EP
Quick, name three pro bowlers? Ah, forget that and why not go "Curling" with Angry Red Planet. What an EP! Four cool songs that can make you happy, sad or just have a good laugh. They have their rhyme and reason down much better than on their first EP, adding better bite, humor and more confident and purposeful vocals. Their songs range from poppy hardcore to almost funk. Some of the sounds you'll get are of strong wack and slap drumming, and guitar that goes from siren to swirling scratch strumming. Tell your mom you gotta gotta go.
-Thomas Siegel (from Ink Disease #10, Winter 1985)
While their debut EP borrowed more heavily from early punk and basic thrash, this follow-up has ANGRY RED PLANET joining the burgeoning ranks of "early HÜSKER DÜ"-sounding hands. Actually, they also sound like latter-day HÜSKERS, with Bob Mould-type guitar and much poppier tunes.
-Tim Yohannan (from Maximum Rocknroll #32, January 1986)
