Therapy?, Babyteeth - Back in 1991 the Irish rockers ‘Therapy?’ released their first mini-album “Babyteeth” that featured both the tracks “Meat Abstract” and “Punishment Kiss” from their debut release, the 7” vinyl “Meat Abstract” single from 1990 that had a pressing of a mere 1000 copies.
The tracklisting is as follows:
1. Meat Abstract
3. Punishment Kiss
4. Animal Bones
5. Loser Cop
6. Innocent X
7. Dancin’ With Manson
From the mini-album’s start we are treated to the downbeat, sleazy, bitter sound that early ‘Therapy?’ was all about. With a sampled “Wake up…time to die!” welcoming you intro the first track, you know what to expect. Each track on the release has its own dark and evil character that shines through the musical gloom. The track “Innocent X” is a personal favourite and, in my opinion, is of the best tracks the band have ever written. For an even more energy-filled and darkly aggressive version of the track, get your hands on the live recording of it that was included on the 1993 “Opal Mantra” single release.
For anyone who is a bit of a late-comer into the group’s music, it is important to get your dirty mitts on this mini-album along with the 1991 mini-album “Pleasure Death,” the 1992 debut, full-length album “Nurse” and the 1993 mini-album “Hats Off To The Insane.”
The mini-album was released through Wiiija Records on both CD and LP formats.
