I have no original sleeve so I snatched the scans off from somewhere on the Internet. And talking about doing repost from the good ‘ol Dressed for the H-Bomb that malfeitor asked for here we go! Malfeitor posted it way back in June 2006! And there you also find a comment by the drummer from Max Load. X-Rod might be considered synth punk just cause it has a synth which is kind ofÂ ridiculous. When was the synth punk term coined? I would love to have synth on all my punk records. Love it. Even violin. Thank you Ultravox.
Magazine Sex is a bit slower punk rock with chugga chugga guitars. All in all two amazing tracks for the weekend party. Stay punk and don’t forget to wank(it’s good for the prostate as you get older).
You’re on fire with the posts here right now Peter, it’s almost like it’s the summer of 2006 all over again.
Pretty great record as well. I would like to hear more HC records with synth by the way.
Thanks to the flue I happen to have some time to do this shit more often.
And yeah synth in HC would be awesome. More Synth Crust pleasssee!
You need to get sick more often!!
Talking about synth in HC just pick up A Diet for the Worms by ISM. Unreal album!
And you happen to camp on the site as well?
To gain a healthy prostate,how often do you have to wank? In Japan they recommend prostate gland massage.
I will listen to the record…….
The songs made you at least shut up SwePete!
But no answers yet.
Ah, good to see my hometown represented here, sort of. These guys were from Belleville, Illinois, which is just over the river from St. Louis, Missouri.
I was very surprised when I was looking up this band in the Flex! discography to see this band was from Belleville, IL, which is also my hometown. Great to see Belleville made its small contribution to punk history.
Great record, Peter. I love the B side…it reminds me of Vom a little, which is a good thing. Thanks
Anyone think Magazine Sex sounds like Devoto era Buzzcocks or should that be Magazine, excellent choice, thanks for this site, how many more undiscovered buzzsaw gems are left to unearth,keep em coming
Yeah timmythepunk I certainly hear a bit of Magazine in Magazine Sex.
I can actually hear the pages turning!
Peter said, “When was the synth punk term coined?”
Answer: By LA Times music critic regarding The Screamers, at some point in the late ’70s.
I shall download and listen. I might even enjoy.
I didn’t finish my thought above: LA Times music critic Christine McKenna.
Hey to all. I am the original drummer of Max Load. I played on “Magazine Sex” only (I was temporarily kicked out during the recording of “X-Rod”). I am willing to answer any questions you may have. No I do not have a picture sleeve. I do have some NOS discs, however. I am now the guitar/singer of Aintry, as well as my side project Tabasco Flowers. Cool site.
I love the hand-drawn labels on this – the tunes are sweet too!!!!
Hey, this is Tony Mayr from Max Load.
If anyone would like to know things like “what were they thinking?”or “did they just let
those guys run around loose?”about the band or the guys involved Write me!
I’m new to the web & so far e-mail has been about things that don’t apply to me or
things I care little about,I don’t play music very much any more but I still love it!
