S.S.T. released this debut record and it's really good punk. Don't expect thrash 'cause these guys have been around for awhile. Another radical group that accompanied the Rock Against Reagan tour. Buy the record, it's good. It even features Dick's version of Purple Haze which is great.
-Javi Savage (from Big City #5, July/August 1983)
Yahoo! The most remarkable thing about this fine album is that the production is every bit as raunchy as it was on their four-year old debut EP. When you add that extra-grungy edge to the Dicks' absorbing mid- to fast punk songs, heavily distorted guitarwork, and gruff Texas vocals, you're bound to have a winner. The drunkenness and political commitment come across clearly in the music, but gems like "Bourgeois Fascist Pig" deserve a lyric sheet.
-Jeff Bale (from Maximum Rock'n'Roll #7, July/August 1983)
Great fuckin record! Hey, I've got some basic disagreements with the hammer-and-sickle politics but none of this comes across in the music or attitudes of these guys. Basically what comes across is an idealism with rallying cries against Amerikkkan institutions reminiscent of the '60s set to the the Dicks' original sound...raw drivin' rock. This album kicks.
-Vince Rancid (from Slam #16, 1983)
Wild Texas punk band, full of venom at the status quo; make no mistake, this is radical Marxist agit-prop for the '80s… songs like "Anti-Klan," "Pigs Run Wild," "No Nazi's Friend" and the title cut. Worth checking out even if you won't lay down your life with them!
