Cat #: TOX-001
Format: 7" EP
Ah, yes, another swell cover by Pushead, the kind of drawing you'd give your mom for her birthday. Modern Industry's "Out of Focus" is the best of the serious side, and "Penis Brain" by Manson Youth is the best on the other side, though Moslem Birth gets an "A" for effort and sarcasm. Kent State is the loser on this EP, not bad, but... not worth explaining.
-Bess (from Paranoia #6, Spring 1983)
Just when I thought SoCal was getting a bit stale, along comes this great 4-song EP with one cut each from Kent State, Modern Industry, Moslem Birth, and Manson Youth. All four present intense, unusual, and diverse styles of contemporary punk, tinged with deep cynicism. This isn't L.A. schlock horror rock, but the real thing--the horrors of living today. Buy and die.
