7" - $3.50
This ode to Mary Magdalene is a single from the album The Untidy Suicides of Your Degenerate Children. The B-side is a Billy Joel cover done in true Donut fashion.
Jammy buggers at the best of times, Magdalene finds the Donuts channeling all their mad energy into perversities into something which, given a lick of production gloss, could approcach the realm of Jane's Addiction stunrawk. "Only the Good Die Young," meanwhile, features a vacuum cleaner solo. With chord changes. Laugh? Oh, OK then..."
Alice Donut, the notorious New York hardcore quintet, have a new double A-sided single released by Alternative Tentacles. "Magdalene," a Donut original, is backed with the band's distinctive interpretation of Billy Joel's "Only the Good Die Young," which has a food mixer among the featured instruments!
