On the fourth release by art-rockers Shudder to Think, Get Your Goat, the band created a record that with each additional spin reveals something new. The final studio album with guitarist Chris Matthews and drummer Mike Russell proved to be one of their most consistent. The album also turned out to be the first step toward their trademark textured sound (later achieved on Pony Express Record and 50,000 B.C.), shedding the straight-ahead production of the previous Funeral at the Movies and Ten Spot. "Goat" and "Pebbles" are a couple of classic Shudder tracks that engage the listener with their genre-bending music and nonsensical lyrics. The chromatic riffing of "Baby Drop" and "Rain-Covered Cat" confirms the group's technical proficiency, and "She Wears He-Harem" shows off Craig Wedren's maturing skills as a vocalist. This would also be the last release for Dischord Records by Shudder to Think, as the group inked a deal with Epic afterwards. The last release by all four original members more than met the standard set by the band's previous efforts. - - by Greg Parto ( - -

Aside from Guitar Wolf, Teengenerate are the best-known Japanese garage act in the United States, and their savage beat gets proper LP attention with Get Action. The band blasts through a dozen sound-alike tracks with good-natured violence and electrical velocity, produced on the cheap and recorded in one sitting so that the whole mess sounds like a crackling mass of static through a dusty stylus. Sometimes the band gets lost in the murk, but more often they come through with sheer adolescent energy and sloppy R&B aplomb. Greasier than the Ramones, more youthful than the Pagans, Teengenerate blaze with a nearly hardcore fury but it always sounds like a party, even at their wildest. Like Guitar Wolf, Teengenerate have a fairly fractured sense of the English language, but their grasp of American rock & roll conventions is tighter than the surreal interpretation of the mighty Wolf, making for less idiosyncratic listening but more reliable dance action. "Dressed in Black" is the hit, an irresistible chant-along number with a chunky riff and pogo-ready rhythm. Other great tracks are the breakneck opener "Mess Me Up," the juicy power pop of "Right Now," and their nearly unrecognizable race through "Shake, Rattle & Roll." Guaranteed to leave xenophobic punks quaking in their American-made boots. - - by Fred Beldin ( - -

Here's the CD version of the LP that was released by Mind Control back in 2001, thanks to the kind folks at Busted Heads. And god damn, pretty much anything that comes from either Mind Control or Busted Heads is going to be a winner, and this scorcher is no different. These Texans blaze through 13 tracks of fucking classic hardcore/punk in barely over 20 minutes with tons of energy and a great multi vocal attack. The songs are the perfect blend of pissed off hardcore and punk rock as well, taking the attitude and slight catchiness of the latter and blending it with the pure aggression and speed of the former. There's even a thrashy crossover feel in a couple of the tracks. Plus there
are some totally reckless lead breaks to boot. You can't lose! They even close out with two raging covers: "Build Me a Bomb" by Jerry's Kids and "I Hate Myself" by The Offenders. Oh yeah. For some reason there are only 10 actual tracks on the CD even though there are 13 songs (some tracks contain more than one song), so things can be hard to follow, but I guess it's not really a big deal in the end. The recording is perfect for what these guys are doing, too. It's not too clean, but it is just polished enough to refrain from sounding overly raw or anything like that. Everything sounds natural, the bass presence rips, the guitars have a nice sort of resonant distortion that brings the mid-80's to mind, and the dry vocal yells are right in with the music. Damn fine. The layout is all in black and white, and mainly text. The cover combines crazy illustrations with some weird collaged photographs and just looks bizarre. It's definitely got an early punk feel to it. There's a map of Texas with some skulls, insects, and other kooky shit. Weird. All of the inner pages are black with white text, and that's that (aside from some tiny band photos at the end). The lyrics are pissed as shit and totally straightforward, pulling no punches, be it regarding personal issues, political issues, or a mix of the two. "Everybody's always talking about how good it used to be, They've given up on life, They're living in mediocrity, So stop whining about the scene now or how the bands all fucking suck, If you wanna see some change then raise your voice and rise above!" Another great, no bullshit hardcore record from Busted Heads. They've got good taste, so check this one out. (8/10) (

"Hailing from Brazil this extremely brutal grindcore trio presents 29 tracks in 31 minutes, so you know it's absolutely no time for bullshit. Or the often used phrase "all killer - no filler". I'm not sure that it's all killer, but there's definitely no filler on here. The front cover art shows a guy's head being sliced with a machete and on the back we find some bloodthirsty ladies, all in black and white and probably taken from some old horror movie or magazine. Or at least influenced by those. The booklet is also filled with, alongside the Portuguese lyrics, horror pics taken from comic books. All very simple and stylish.
Besides the hint you get from the horror influences, Hutt draws inspiration from fellow countrymen Rot, (early) Nasum, Pig Destroyer, Cripple Bastards etc. You know, the fast and brutal kind. At first I wasn't impressed at all with this, but as the tracks fly by I tend to like it more and more. Half an hour of this is too much for me to maintain the interest all the way through, but no one's forcing me to listen to the whole thing at once either. It would probably be a better grade if I wanted to though. But that has to do with my musical taste and is not caused by the band - 'cause Hutt delivers. But it's the same as with food, just 'cause it's good it doesn't mean you can eat in infinity, right?" (Krogh)

When American rock fans travel abroad and check out the music scenes of European countries, they often come across talented artists who are little-known in the United States. And in many cases, it isn't because of the language barrier — Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, and other European countries are full of rockers who perform in English exclusively. That lack of U.S. exposure is usually a case of artists recording for European labels and having limited distribution in North America. Italy's Cripple Bastards, who have been around since 1988, are a perfect example of a European band who has enjoyed a European cult following but isn't well-known in the U.S. — which can be attributed to the fact that many of their releases have only come out in Europe. Recorded in 2002, Desperately Insensitive is an exception. This Cripple Bastards CD has been widely distributed in North America — and for U.S. listeners, it isn't a bad introduction to the Italian band. Desperately Insensitive combines '80s-style hardcore with elements of grindcore and death metal; the lyrics (some of which are very sociopolitical) have a punk outlook, whereas Giulio the Bastard's demonic, larynx-shredding vocal style is more typical of the grindcore and death metal/black metal fields. Giulio renders the lyrics difficult to understand without the lyric sheet, which is regrettable because the Bastards have a lot on their minds. The title track, for example, is about the post-communist turmoil that has plagued the former Yugoslavia. But sonically, Desperately Insensitive is appealing if you're in the mood for high-speed sensory assault. The Bastards' ferocious, mosh pit-friendly metal/punk attack is an acquired taste, certainly, but those who have a taste for the extreme will find this CD to be exhilarating — shortcomings, flaws, and all.

Speedstate Records -

Finally! I've been wanting to pick up the old Concrete Sox LP's for a long, long time now, but never really wanted to bother tracking them down on eBay, so I was so psyched that the mighty Speedstate decided to reissue them in fine form after all these years. This is their debut from 1986, with bonus tracks from their 1988 demo as well as some live/compilation songs. I have no clue why the hell they decided to introduce this record with goofy keyboards and female singing since that has absolutely nothing to do with their sound, but whatever… This is raw, thrashy UK hardcore with a much more metallic tinge than a lot of those other bands had early on. The songs mix up the tempos a lot and tend to lean towards more moderate paces, and are also way longer (averaging three to four minutes, some even longer) than those of many other crossover bands at the time. Admittedly that's one of the problems I have with this band, because they're good, but they do get a little boring after awhile, because the songs don't usually need to be as long as they are. They have a tendency to throw in too many lead riffs and breaks that serve little purpose. Take for instance the clean guitars, keyboards, and painful singing that start off the six-minute "Sustain the Orgy"… there's just no need for that. But in general the songs mix up power chords with thrashy picking patterns and metal riffs, sounding largely like a crossover thrash metal band with the ruggedness and message of hardcore, as well as straightforward vocals that are sort of shouted in key, less aggressive than possibly expected. The band is definitely at their best during faster, shorter tracks like "Sadists". Like the other Speedstate reissues that I've heard I can't help but wish that the remastering was done just a little bit louder, but it sounds pretty good for its age. The mix is somewhat thin and lacking low-end, but the drums, guitars, and vocals are pretty even, and I like the texture of the guitar tone a lot. The 1988 demo sounds pretty rough. Listenable to some degree, but rough. It's really muddy and there's a lot of warping sort of effects from the master tape, which is a shame because the songs seem slightly more focused. The same goes for the live tracks. They sound okay, but not that great, and I don't find them all that enjoyable to listen to. The disc comes in a nice digipack with some of the original LP artwork and a foldout insert with tons of old band photos and flyers collaged around. The lyrics to the tracks from the LP are inside in both English and Japanese, dealing with typical topics like animal rights, war, greed, etc. - but the approach is actually a little different from normal, which is interesting. "Man wages war on his own planet, 'til only man remains, He obliterates his fellow creatures just for capital gain, His power crazed ambitious mind is eager to reach the top, And in this dead and silent world he's not an easy force to stop…" Awesome. I could probably deal without the live tracks because 73 minutes is way too much of this for anyone to take, but the demo songs are worth hearing in addition to the 12 cuts from the original LP. I wouldn't necessarily consider this to be as strong as some of the stuff that Heresy, Ripcord, etc. were doing, but it's definitely worth owning for fans of the genre, and Speedstate has done a wonderful job handling the reissues.

Speedstate Recs.

Here's the second Concrete Sox re-release from Speedstate, this time their second record from 1987 with bonus tracks consisting of a slew of live songs recorded in Italy in 1989, one unreleased song, and one compilation track.The songs on "Whoops, Sorry Vicar!" are significantly stronger than the "Your Turn Next" material, though definitely in a similar vein. The biggest differences are that the music is even more metallic, and the vocals are a bit more aggressive, possessing a bit of a sneer and dropping some of the hints at singing. The message and overall attitude still have a hardcore/punk feel, but musically much of this stuff is leaning more towards metal, with plenty of simple breakdowns and note-based metal runs (check out the intro to "Rumour Well Out of Hand"). But they make better use of the lengths of the tracks, so it's not as boring. The songs have a bit more direction and cohesiveness, despite a few unexpected twists or a few areas that do drag a bit. The 1:17 blast of "Scientific Slaughter" is definitely a crossover keeper, though… so they didn't totally shed that angle. But then, there is the last piece, "Moustache (Acting Like a Maniac)", which is a brief joke on Metallica's "Whiplash". Once more I'd say the remastering probably could have been taken up a few more notches as far as output volume, but no big deal. The recording on the LP tracks sounds similar to "Your Turn Next", but not quite as raw. There's still a lack of low-end, but the slightly cleaner tones do help a little. I don't think the live tracks are a necessary inclusion because the sound is pretty shoddy, and I couldn't make it through more than a couple of the songs. Plus, at 70+ minutes the disc is too much to take in one sitting. Not at all unlike the first Concrete Sox reissue, the CD comes in a nice digipack with original LP art and tons of band photos and such, with the lyrics included in both English and Japanese on a foldout insert. The content this time around is very similar to the songs from the first LP, as is the manner in which the topics are tackled. "Religious brainwash is now full frontal, Not just the hour on the odd Sunday, Down on their hands and knees headbutting the floor, Peeling off the brain to a closed door…" Another killer Speedstate job well done. And it's awesome that they included the raging "Speak Japanese or Die" from the "Crust & Anguished Life" compilation! I'll be very curious to see what the label does next… (
