Slugs – Problem Child/Suspicion 7″

Here we have the debut from the Slugs from Noo Jaak Zitti who appeared on the first Killed By Death LP along with other favourites like, Gasoline, the Users, Kraut etc, and yes, all of which have been posted here of course. Do you really need any more proof that this is the best site for high quality punk rock? Nah, didn’t think so!

From what I’ve understood, Ray Jalbert, the singer in these Slugs did a cover for both this record, and their follow up I’m in love with you (again), but  the band never picked them up from the print shop so they were thrown away. Later on stock copies of both 7inches were tucked together as a double 7inch and sold with a sleeve done by one of the Hollywood Brats guys, Rick Rivet.

It seems like this band is surprisingly well documented, so do some googeling yourself if you wanna find out more about them.

    Actually Rick Rivets (ex-New York Dolls) was in the band The Brats, not Hollywood Brats. Not to be confused with The Brat from L.A. or Brats from Holland or even washed up pathetic has-been rapper Da Brat. I believe Rick played on this too.

    Enough of that though, both SLUGS singles are Great & I imagine used to be rare before someone sold like a hundred thousand million copies of them on ebay.

    You are incorrect about the Manager for the Slugs….We had no manager, we did all our own bookings….I should know as I am the original SLUG drummer.
