More Noise from Wisconsin
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my previous Killdozer post. I almost decided not to post this one, but I really did appreciate the comments I received. This post is my way of thanking you.
I already told you all about Killdozer, so I guess I don't have to tell you again. This CD contains two recordings previously released on vinyl. Intellectuals are the Shoeshine Boys of the Ruling Elite was Killdozer's first album, released back in 1984. It contains a nasty version of Creedence Clearwater Revival's Run Through the Jungle and a song about everyone's favorite serial killer from Wisconsin, Ed Gein. Snakeboy (or possibly Snake Boy) was their second album, released in 1985. It contains a version of Neil Young's Cinnamon Girl, that you've gotta hear to believe. It also features one of my very favorite Killdozer songs, King of Sex. ("I am the King of Sex! And I come from the state of Tex-as!")
These recordings were released on the Touch And Go label, by the way. Just thought I'd mention that. That fact alone should tell you quite a bit about what this band sounds like. At any rate, if you liked For Ladies Only, I'm sure you'll like this. Not so many cover songs, but this was recorded when they were younger and fresher, and it is musically much more interesting than their later material.
I'm not going to post a complete track listing here, but you should be aware that tracks 1 through 8 comprise their debut album, while tracks 9 through 19 comprise Snakeboy. For maximum enjoyment, serve with cheese and Point beer.
