MAN IN BLACK 7" EP
01. Man in Black
02. No Change
03. The Egyptian
04. Living in the Shadows
Label: Toxic Shock Records
Cat #: TOX-002
Format: 7" EP
Old L.A. punk in the Hell Comes to Your House sort of way, but not quite up to par with that. Some keyboards here and there, heavy metal traces also. This four song EP played on 33 is released by Toxic Shock, creators of Noise From Nowhere.
-Javi Savage (from Big City #4, July/August 1983)
I was surprised by this record. I usually don't like bands with keyboards, but this record is good. The keyboards don't really stand out but rather blend in for a fuller sound. I really like some of the guitar riffs on this baby. Yeah, I'd get it so write to Toxic Shock Records.
-Jone (from Paranoia #6, Spring 1983)
Two songs in a fast, powerful thrash style (seemingly augmented by an organ), and two in a slower yet engaging style. Some of the lyrics are incomprehensible, even after reading them, and their live shows leave a lot to be desired, but this record is good.
-Jeff Bale & Tim Yohannon (from Maximum Rock'n'Roll #7, July/August 1983)
