Revenge Fantasies Of The Impotent
Cassette - $4.00 (
$9.00 list) | CD - $12.00
Fourth full length from these NYC noise-pop renegades finds Bongwater's Kramer on production duties and includes the near legendary version of Sabbath's "War Pigs" on trombone!
Brainy, subversive pop-core from New York. Rhythmic guitar layers and desperate whooping vocals invoke a lyrical world of butchered bodies, nuns straddling Gatling guns, lustful mutant Chihuahua-like beasts and other timely images of fascist doom. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wanna kill the president. (Giron, Spin)
Already with another full album in a little more than six months after MULE, Alice Donut comes out with Revenge Fantasies Of The Impotent on Alternative Tentacles. (That title gets "LP name of the week" in the office pool.) The band has been diligently scribing themselves to the task of making the world a better place for self-immolation and torture (but not their own, God forbid!). Shimmy Disc's Kramer helps the New York-based band behind the production helm, and label-mate Jello Biafra (busy with his own various solo and joint ventures) gives a hand to the mastering. With cuts like "My Best Friend's Wife," "Telebloodprintmediadeathwhore," "Sleep," and "Dead River," you know that it's just got to be good. (The Hard Report - May 24, 1991)
