5.0 out of 5 stars A Proper Rock Battering 9 Jan 2003
By Rob
Format:Audio CD
There simply isn't enough good to say about this record. If you are getting a little tired of the poppy nu metal and generally softer rock that the USA produces so well, then get your listening gear around this and let the Brighton based rockers show you how it is done.
From the first bars of 'Celebrate your Mother' the band carry you off on a twisted tour of everything you never expect but come to miss immediately the record finishes. At only 25 minutes long it seems like a bit of short changing has occoured, but rest assured you will listen again & again.
Should you be thinking twice about paying for it, then don't. If you want to have your soul shaken by rock, buy it now. Right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loud, mean and full of energy 23 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's not background music. You must play this album up LOUD. It rocks it's heart out and makes the blood flow faster and harder. Don't listen if you've got high blood pressure, this could be all it takes to throw you over the edge.
Fast and furious. Head shaking mental music that makes me feel ALIVE and briliant.
I love it. It's an essential for anyones CD collection - even if you aren't into harder music - you should still own it - as a conversation piece - to help open your mind to the limitless possibilities there are in music.

Eighties Match Box B-Line Disaster are a band that have given my desire for music a much needed boost. From the opening song 'celebrate your mother' with its catchy beats and lyrics to my favourite 'Morning has broken' that jumps between genius and insanity this album is awesome. Unlike most albums that grace my top ten such as RadioHead 'The Bends' and the Pixies 'Doolittle' Horse of the Dog keeps you moving to a frenzy of stylish drug fuelled carnage, that injects your veins with punk-rock spasms.
I've listened to this short album non-stop and can't fault it.
This is the sort of band that once you listented to the album you just have to see them live depsite fearing for your health in quest to do so.
Don't even THINK about buying this, if you want to turn up the volume and raise your adrenaline to a dangerous (thets do something crazy) level JUST BUY IT> NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Rock Albums In Years 3 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Now in the states recording their next album which is gonna be excellent (buy the new single 'Mister Mental'which also includes fantastic B-Sides) this is their first album, and it blew me away when i first heard it. I was so amazed by the raw power of it and it jus makes u want to jump up and mosh! The band also combines a thrashing blend of guitars with gritty bass and drums added over with Guy Mcknights twisted voice and lyrics it makes this album a must for metal/rock fans. Alsp proof that Brit rock is not dead, this is a very unique band and there live show is magic. Great buy! (Very shot album, worth every penny though!!)
Best tracks - Celebrate Your Mother (lyric content,lol),Chicken,Fishfingers,Morning Has Broken. All good really. BUY IT!

I love watching bands live, and I love listening to a good album. It's not often that the power of the live show can be recorded onto a little round silver thing and still poccess the power of the live show...the Eighties Matchbox B-line Disater manage to do this on "Horse of the Dog".
The raw power and dynamicism of this disc make it a fantastic buy for anyone who likes catchy, noisy British rock. The comparisons with Nick Cave's The Birthday Party and The Cramps are justified, even though these young lads weren't actually influenced by either.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a genre of their own 24 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant. Offensive. Violent.
Surf-blues-metal? deathabilly? only an NME journo could box this band. buy it- it'll blow your world up
chicken is the ultimate poker song
charge the guns is the best song ever about the 1st world war.
psychosis safari is possibly the best song for doing 32 in a 30 zone i've heard in a long while.
celebrate your mother is just a great song.
if you're a moronic system of a down fan who booed them, you should listen to their album, then headbutt a wall for being such a fool.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best bands in Britain 12 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
I saw the 80s matchbox play reading festival in 2002 and they were amazing. The album is short (around 25 minuites) but its so full and fast that it dosnt matter. not such a well know band, but certainly worth a listen. Best track is 'Psychosis Safari', but all the tracks are great anyway. Mixture of speed drumming, funky effects on guitars, deep bass lines and and some cool effects on Guy McKnight's vocals makes an amazing and unmissable combination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but a bit short 10 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love all the songs on this album, although it only lasts 25 minutes. 10 songs sounds like a reasonably sized album, however the fact that most of the songs are under 3 minutes long, means that however much you love the music, you can't help feeling that there isnt nearly as much here as you would like. The songs all triumph for me, mostly quite fast (apart from the exceedingly slow "Presidential Wave") and they all have memorable tunes, sung by brilliant vocalist Guy McKnight, whose bizzare but excellent voice make The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster possibly the most original band ever. It's probably true that i wouldn't have noticed them if it wasn't for their ludicrously long (not to mention rubbish) name, but then again, part of the point in having a name is to interest and attract people into looking your band up and giving you a listen. The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster may not be quite as commercialy successful as other British bands like Funeral for a Friend (another of my favourite bands) or Lostprophets, but they are no doubt, worth a listen. Don't be too put off the fact that its only 25 minutes long, when you listen to them you'll be glad you did!
