SCRATCH ACID shed some of their BIRTHDAY PARTY influences on this LP, which contains an assortment of powerful, gritty rockers mixed in with a few artier numbers. More of a rootsy rock approach is evident here, and the overall variety makes it recommendable.
-Steve Spinali (from Maximum Rocknroll #42, November 1986)
One of those great weird powerhouse records that makes the '80s the finest musical time of all. The music is so hard to describe that it might be more effective to choose a few choice lyrics like "I promised me I wouldn't do this: spit myself a feral kiss" and "In the rearview mirror is a yellow eyeball and it looks just like yours and the wind cries and you lay there like a bed of snow and headless hunchbacks step over you." Such a versatile band that they all play "musical" instruments and switch up on one cut without diminishing the onslaught. My fave cut is the one with a guest guitarist called "Ain't That Love" -- the music transcends its already oscillating barriers and slices through your churning brain. Not one bad song on here. Worth the wait. There's also a limited edition album cover for $1.25 more. Get yours now.
