- Label: Slovenly
- Catalog Number: 702-190
- Availability: In Stock
At long last, Black Gladiator and Slovenly boldly present the first ever
reissue of the infamous “Eat Hot Lead” LP from San Fernando Valley’s
PUKE SPIT & GUTS! Fully authorized by the band’s surviving members,
this project was ten years in the making, and originally slated for
re-release by Alternative Tentacles. Here’s Jello Biafra, as quoted from
Re/Search’s “Incredibly Strange Music vol. II” tome:
“Most extreme of all in music and attitude was PUKE SPIT & GUTS from
Southern California - their album was subtly titled Eat Hot Lead.
They’re none to subtle about how much they hate having to play with punk
bands, even though they sound like them. In L.A. they even had a run-in
with an original D.C. hardcore band, The Teen Idles (Ian MacKaye
pre-Minor Threat; Henry Rollins was their roadie). Seems Ian borrowed
their bass amp and blew it up. P.S.& G. chased them all over the
parking lot outside Madame Wong’s (a punk club)!”
A crew of spirited So. Cal. weirdos, as opposed to mere punks, Puke Spit
& Guts released the LP on their own Important Records label in
1980. Members Donny Death, Captain Worm, Dick Head (real name!), Marie
Manslaughter and Stuicide assembled this absurdist and raunchy LP with
the unholy shrieks of human victims being fed into a countertop blender
between each track. On the opening cut - the PS&G theme - Death
declares most bizarrely and brazenly “Sex Pistols couldn’t their liquor,
Ramones wear tennis shoes! Alice Cooper is a party pooper, we’re the
punk band for youuuu!” On “Kill for Kicks” he proclaims “I’m so tired,
I’m so bored, I don’t wanna live no more! Life is a fucker and I’m a
whore!” And it only gets weirder from there. Marie Manslaughter lets you
know if you wanna get some of her fine lovin’ you gotta self-mutilate
on “Send Me Your Ear,” and even then, anal sex is outta the question on
“You Ain’t Never.” We’re not even gonna attempt to tell you What Captain
Worm is yelling about on the title track.
This one-in-a-million scumbag rarity makes a killer companion to your
Mentors, Jabbers, Broken Talent, and We’re Loud records. Check the full
story / interview by Laurent Bigot in the upcoming issue of Ugly Things
Magazine (#45). A limited pressing of 100 copies (mail-order only) on
blood splattered clear vinyl includes an autographed 8x10 photo of Marie
Manslaughter, and as a Bandcamp download exclusive, there are 24 rare
photos + 10 bonus tracks: live material from 1979, outtakes from the
ERRATIC session (Capt. Worm’s post-PS&G project), one track from
Worm’s last ever recording session (1984), a KROQ album giveaway
aircheck, and a 2001 recording by DONNY DEATH JR. and the PUTZ.
