Kraut – Unemployed E.P. 7″

kraut_unemployed.jpgAlot better then the hyped “Kill For Cash” 7″. I was so dissapointed when I got hold of “Kill…” that I got rid of it right away. What was/is all the fuzz about? This on the other hand is a solid killer NY punk rock 7inch. I saw a video of a reformed Kraut and it was…well am I allowed to use THAT word again? Ok here we go: CRAP!

    I agree wholeheartedly, this one’s pretty damn good while the other pretty much blows. Scarcity does not equal quality.

  3. Eric says:

    Much better than Kill For Cash – “I’m f*cking my girl at the matinee” – classic

  4. dylan says:

    this record is good. i like it. and while owning neither, i sort of like the other one too. i remember the LP not being as good as either 7″…

    Nope!

    Here’s the crap:

    I agree- “Kill For Cash” is pretty bad. Musically it reminds me too much of some rock star wank fest. “Unemployed” has always been my favorite Kraut song. The 1st Kraut LP is pretty good (at least to my ears) but there is some wanky crap on it that drags on. The 2nd Kraut LP is pretty bad and too metal for me.

    Was always a bit wary when it came to KRAUT. I just thought they’d be a bit too “rock” for my liking, but this 7″ smokes. Three great tracks and I love the fact that there’s a bit of variety. Have to check out their first LP.

    TOTALLY AGREE, THIS FAR BEATS THE SHIT OUT OF THE KILL FOR CASH 7″

    CHEERS CORPUS 77

    I have to agree “unemployed” is a great recording.
    but “Kill for cash” still stands out.# 1 they were only together a month. #2 it’s only a two track
    recording.and #3 they were the first N.Y.C punk band to have A 7″ out. At$200 a pop and only 1000
    pressings Hey! I’ll take EM.

    Is the guy above a Cromagnon perhaps?(Nudge, nudge, wink, wink…)I like both 7’s, and the 1st Lp. I love Rock’n’Roll!!!

  11. pirateradionut says:

    LOVE the 1st LP, 2nd LP is just okay

  15. JohanMalm says:

    This is what I got so far, please help me out.

    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee

    first vers:

    1. Mom and dad go out at night
    2. so no one watch me, it ain’t right
    3. it makes me ???
    4. hey dirty mouth you gotta be full

    that’s why
    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
    I’m fucking my girl at the matinee

    second vers:
    1. …and it feels great
    2. she goes down and suck my dick
    3. son how did you like my daughter
    4. come on dad you don’t wanna know

    third vers:
    1. momy won’t let me out at night
    2. she said
    3. you can trust me on my own
    4.??? I’m leaving home

      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee

      Mom and dad go out at night
      so no one watch me, it ain’t right
      it leaves me staring like a tool
      with dirty mags they oughta be fools

      that’s why
      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee
      I’m fucking my girl at the matinee

      We’ve Got Truth I’m Just To Quick
      she goes down and sucks my dick
      son how did you like the show
      come on dad you oughta know

      momy won’t let me out at night
      she say: stay home, an just sit tight
      you can trust me on my own
      so fuck this joint, I’m leaving home

      Although it sounds a bit like:
      I’m fucking Michael at the matinee
