The Lewd – American Wino LP

lewd_wino.jpgA classic american punk rock record that is way better then their slightly overrated “Kill Yourself” 7inch. The b-side is record live and I could easily live without it. No, what makes this record great is all the tracks on the a-side. Everything from song length, song titles, lyrics and the production is just perfect. “The Lewd were an outgrowth of an earlier band called the Sixteen Year Old Virgins, who changed their name to the Knobs. Lead singer J. Satz Baret was formerly as “Satin Sheets,” and played in the later, non-cabaret version of Ze Whiz Kids, circa 1975. Ze Whiz Kids, primarily a theater group, also included Tomata Du Plenty, later of the Screamers.” More info about The Lewd at:

    Aaaaargh !

    I thank you tons for this, but apparently track 2 is missing ?! Is this according to plan…nice way to frustrate the heck out of me.

  4. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Hi Boulder! Track 2 is not missing. American Wino and Justice/Liberty goes into each other so they’re posted as whole. I tried to separate them but it sounded a bit strange with a snap off on the cymbal.

  5. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Sorry I was confused now. Not the cymbal I meant the guitar. When I listen to it now I think I can actually split them up!

  6. squabbler says:

    cool, i sold my copy years ago and didn’t have it on tape. i agree that this is much better than the 7 inch. saw these guys at my first show.

  7. dylan says:

    this is a great record. i like it better than the 7 inch, too… a band called VS. containing the bass? player does an awesome more homemade sounding version of “magnetic heart” which i havent heard in a while, but i remember being really good….

  8. Degenerateen says:

    LP is better than the 7″. That VS. 7″ is really good.

  9. JG says:

    Mobile Home, the best Lewd tune, is missing?

  10. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Yepp the whole b-side is left out. But you can buy the reissue!

  11. Jay Thurston says:

    The only thing I ever like by the Lewd was Mobile Home…which Turbonegro do a better of. I did not like the album or the 7″. Sorry. They were not that great live either.

  12. Jay Thurston says:

    Fucking typo…fuck! Turbonegro’s version fucking kicks ass over the original.

  13. West Bay says:

    hey, Does anybody have the lyrics to “beyond moderatin?” My band is trying to cover it ( thanks

    too bad Olga de Volga of the LEWD passed away -RIP

  15. loud statues says:

    Yeah a bootleg LP exists with a couple bonus tracks in a foldout cover…I think it was released in the nineties…I’ve got one posted on under Loud Statues seller name…but I’m not in a hurry to sell it hence the price…but check the other sellers…BTW…Kill Yourself is hard to beat, especially from the time period..and how many live punk releases even sound as good as this? not many…either way this band ruled…wish i coulda seen em….

    Beyond Moderation

    Kick it in
    Rip it up
    Tear it out
    Fuck it up
    Knock it down
    Blow it up
    Kick it in
    Spit it up
    I’ve had my fair share of child abuse
    Not complaining, whats the use
    I got a license to make a fuss
    I like to drink til I’m unconscious
    Laugh at me, think I’m a mess
    I take everything to excess
    Don’t be a wimpy powder puff
    Too much is not enough
    I grew up in a broken home
    Got a car with lots of chrome
    Got a job with minimum wage
    Now i think i got brain damage

  17. West Bay says:

    thanks for the lyrics!!!!

  18. Renik says:

      Polluted Brain

      Something inside me is trying to break out
      Someone inside me makes me shout
      It’s as if I’m possessed
      Am I damned or am I blessed?

      I’m not playing with a full deck
      I am not a total wreck
      Don’t know why my minds’ on void
      Don’t ask me, I’m not Sigmund Freud

      Alter ego let me go
      My polluted brain

      I hear voices talk to me
      I see things no one can see
      I get this buzzing in my brain
      I get pleasure out of pain

      Comes and goes, it’s like an itch
      Sometimes fun, sometimes a bitch
      Will I ever be free?
      Am I a freak of society?

  25. Chano says:

    “pho-pho-pho-pho-phobia!!!” SO awesome….
