- Label: Drunken Sailor
- Catalog Number: Drunkensailor
- Availability: In Stock
Brand new on Drunken Sailor Records.
Thought you’d missed out on the chance to scoop up one of the best punk
albums of 2017? Luckily for you, here’s another opportunity - the debut
album from Dallas’ own Slimy Member is back in print. That first
pressing evaporated from stores almost as soon as it was released by
Drunken Sailor, and now here it is, just in time for Xmas. So happy
fucking holidays, and maybe don’t sleep on it this time, cheez.
You know the sound already; a meaner-than-thou blast of ominous power
chords and lowdown menace with nods to Rudimentary Peni (obviously), Die
Kreuzen and the seething rush of early Saccharine Trust. That title,
meanwhile, recalls The Cramps while there are even hints of the Misfits
and their horror punk brethren - not least in Cesar Perez’s compelling
growl, which alternates between a cathartic croon and conjuring images
of someone gargling broken glass in an echo chamber. Either way, it
sounds fucking great.
With an endless stream of punk bands throwing back to the 1980s and
somehow getting it very wrong indeed, you’d be forgiven for reading this
dumbass precis and thinking, ‘So fucking what?’ But trust me: this
record more than holds its own with the bands it draws influence from.
It’s a howl from the gutter set to music that makes
you want to pile up your belongings and set fire to them while bricking
the windows of your local Conservative Club. Alternatively, it’s WAY
existential and it fucking slays. Am I swearing too much? I can’t
fucking help it. I fucking love this record. Don’t let yourself miss out
for a second time.
