HATED AND DESPISED tape
No Track Listing Available
Label: Warpt Records
This slow, almost annoying HC is a historical documentation of Asbestos Rockpyle's earlier to present music. Side one has four good songs, my favorites were "Insanity" and "Heroin." Side two was OK with "I Like Disco." Overall, it's a good tape with some great ideas.
-Lady Die (from Warning #15, April/May/June 1985)
This fifteen song tape has some of the best "urban paranoia" sounds from A.R. yet. Tape-loopy dance dirge tunes that work well with Paul Robert William Clark's diverse vocal styling. Often hypnotic, and often nervous rhythms by Anatol Sucher. If you can get this tape, do. I did and I'm a better person for it.
-Bill (from Ink Disease #10, Winter 1985)
A retro-collection of jabs and jibes from these fun-loving troublemakers. While punk in attitude, there's only one really punk song here, the rest being acoustic or rhythm-machine backed--but somehow that doesn't matter too much given the lyrics to such gems as "Pastaman Vibration."
-Tim Yohannan (from Maximum Rocknroll #26, July 1985)
A full-length tape of rantings in the truest cutting edge these guys have every mustered up. Most of the music borders on industrial, though some is thematic to the scathing verse. Their classic anti-establishment, anti-industrialist sentiments are put forward candidly, pointedly, and humorously.
-Dogtowne (from Maximum Rocknroll #29, October 1985)
