So last night Laurie Incognito and I are working on a puzzle and she says she wants to hear some industrial music. I put on Foetus’ Nail and she doesn’t like it. She wants to hear some Ministry or Revolting Cocks, and I explain J.G. Thirlwell basically invented industrial and is a goddamn genius. She says “pooh” and starts talking about how talented that junkie Al Jourgensen is.
And I think to myself: “Man, this is a great problem to have.” I think I’ll keep her.
I am so excited to see the Mentally Ill tonight! So here are the first eight songs of the Undiscovered Corpses album - a sort of “best of” album published by Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label in 2004. The first eight are the real songs from 1979, the good ones - the rest is just the band fucking around with arrangements twenty years later. The remainder of the album fucking sucks, tbh.
A few months ago I posted the youtube videos for every song of Schlong’s Punk Side Story. (I can’t find it right now because tumblr’s search function is a piece of shit, but I’ll link it up later.) My thought at the time was I should do this for a bunch of classic punk albums.
So without further ado … I present to you Blood, Guts & Pussy, voted “most offensive album ever made” by Spin Magazine, by Chicago’s finest: The Dwarves!
The entirety of the Coolie’s classic rock opera and comic book, Doug. Brief summary:
“Amazingly, the Coolies followed … with the brilliant Doug, a trenchant “rock opera” about a skinhead who murders a transvestite short- order cook, gets rich by publishing his victim’s recipes, falls into paranoia and substance abuse and ends up in the gutter. The sad tale is related through ingenious knockoffs of the Who (“Cook Book”), John Lennon (“Poverty”), the Replacements (“Coke Light Ice”), rap (“Pussy Cook”) and metal (“The Last Supper”), and in a comic book — not included with the cassette or CD, alas — designed by Jack Logan, of Pete Buck Comics fame. A quantum leap from its predecessor’s one-dimensional silliness, Doug is a work of demented genius.”
