Want to keep the posting flow up. So I’ll make it easy with a classic from a known band that’s still a bit underrated I think. The debut opens up with the first version of Butcher Baby that is sloppy and wonderful complete with the famous chainsaw solo. Live versions of Fast Food Service and Concrete Shoes on the flip are ok but not in pare with the later studio versions. Note the copyright thing on the back of the sleeve “Power Pop Tunes Ltd”.

    I have grown accustomed to the times passing me by. The kids abandoned reading: books, newspapers and fanzines, then they tired of vinyl LPs and 45s. When I thought I was current, MP3s became mostly irrelevant. Despite a handful of trendoids with beards buying vinyl for fashionable reasons at my record shop, I recognize my decline, exacerbated by patches of my hair falling out and my cock failing without the boost of Total Viagra, which, of course, corresponds with my bloody gums and rotting liver. I worry this blog might be the next victim, unless the hilarity of Jay Thurston returns. In the meantime, I propose a certain tabloidism: Didn’t that chainsaw cut off Lemmy’s cock!

    Lemmy did say that Wendy did in fact,give him quite the working over.

    The Plasmatics are now (2012!) more accepted in the worldwide Metal community then in the Punk circuit. All their early 7″s, the (fake Japanese) 12″ep and even the 1st album ‘New hope for the wretched’ are, in my view, excellent “VERY” American Punk records.
    Saw them back in 1981 in Hamburg/Germany at the notorious Markthalle, as far as I remember, the show was amazing, but the music was a disaster, because of the really, really bad sound at the venue, so I was not very impressed back then.
