Lard are a three piece band which include Jello Biafra; who is a spoken word artist and was lead singer of political punk band Dead Kennedys, and Al Jourggenson; Frontman of Ministry.
Lard have been around since the beginning of the 90s as a side project, but have lately been reborn since Ministry split up, as Jourggenson had to put the band on hold after he made a commitment to Ministry. Jello Biafra has lately been around as a social commentator on TV and Radio shows and has been appearing on bands albums, including The Offspring, No Means No, DOA, Life After Life and Pitchshifter.
For the 70s Rock Must Die e.p. the band haven't really changed since their last album Pure Chewing Satisfaction back in 1997. This is noticable after the tribal Zulu-like voices of Biafra at the beginning of Volcanus 2000, which mentions products and waste. It then follows to break into roaring guitars and thumping drums, which sums up the Lard sound. What then follows is Biafra, displaying his ideas in vocals.
The song 70s Rock Must Die is one of the strangest Lard songs written however, beginning the way the typical guitar riff and then enter the drums at a boringly slow pace. Then Biafra enters with 70s style vocals. The lyrics represent how Biafra believes how the 70s are happening all over again. The lyrics even attack the punk culture, inparticular bands like Rancid, who keep in the 70s style of punk music and image.
However saying all this, unfortunately Lard has it's flaws. The main thing being that in order for Biafra to present his views on one song, he must make the song last about 7 minutes on average, which can be incredibly tiring. Also, the vocals by Biafra do not seem to suit the music played, and really must sound aggressive to suit the music. Also Biafra can go slightly over the top (maybe so they don't get popular from catchy vocals), but its either a love or hate situation. However saying this, Lard are brilliant Music-wise.

Leif Garrett, eat your heart out 9 May 2000
By "livesidog" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although I was only alive for two years during the 70s, I can definitely appreciate the annoyingness of overproduced 70s arena rock (mostly through the magic of those VH1 "Behind the Music" specials). This new 3-song EP from Jello Biafra, Al Jourgensen & co aims to poke fun at this very genre (well, at least the title track does). The 7-minute "70s Rock Must Die" contains just about every 70s rock cliche in the book: the cheesy guitar riff, the cowbell, the tambourines, the falsetto voice (which Biafra nails perfectly), the guitar-wanker solo, the chorus of "come on"s, the slow ballad-esque breakdown in the middle of the song, the kickin' drums, and just about everything else you ever heard a million times in every Ted Nugent or Aerosmith song. The two other tracks on the EP ("Volcanus 2000 (We Wipe the World)" and "Ballad of Marshall Ledbetter") are somewhat generic Lard songs (similar to the material on their last album, "Pure Chewing Satisfaction") and seem sort of tacked on and unrelated to the whole 70s rock theme, but aren't necissarily bad either. If you're a fan of Lard (or a non-fan of 70s rock), then this EP is definitely worth picking up for the title track alone (and for the excellent liner notes which, as usual, contain tons of humorous newspaper clippings and headlines).

worth it for the title track 13 Mar 2000
By amc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Worth the price just for the title track, as usual another LARD release with 1 excellent song and a couple of dodgy ones. Still, nothing will probably match up to Power of LARD! If you don't have that buy it instead but if you do, then get this it's even worth next day UPS. Had hoped to buy the Lard Pinto they used to promote this but was outbid by some rabid fan. Also, check out Alternative Tentacles web site.
