Format: Vinyl
This was one of the standout records of the 80's- a sometimes tuneful blend of guitar thrash & drum machine with lyrics beyond any taboo you could iamgine...'Jordan, Minnesota' is the vile opener, a town conspires to commit mass child abuse a la 'Salo'- the sleevenotes don't help. As don't Albini's breathy vocals, like your father through a bedsheet...'Passing Complexion' & 'Big Money' are strange slabs of noise- the latter a reference to a John Dos Passos book and a relative of the later classic, 'Pete,King of all Detectives'...'Kerosene' is probably BB's best song- the drum program similar/appropriate to Led Zep's 'When the Levee Breaks' (a regular hiphop sample). Arson & sex combine and combust with mindblowing sonic assaults...'Bad Houses' is a downbeat closer, a tribute to The Cure's '17 Seconds', it recalls their 'In Your House'and covers similar themes as the later 'Precious Thing'. In many ways BB's predecessors are Throbbing Gristle- anything can be said- and along with Scraping Foetus off the Wheel (circa-'Nail') provide the most extreme music EVER!!!
'Strange Things' is quite tuneful and a highlight in the darker climes of Side Two- 'Fists of Love' takes in fisting, while 'Bazooka Joe' evokes a White trash nutcase back from the 'great war'...'Stinking Drunk' could be a Fugazi style put-down of the non-sober (which I sometimes agree with). The final track is a live take of 'Cables'- the band as tight as a meathook in a slaughterhouse; if you like this track I reccomend 'Hammer Party'.
A classic; if you believe in those sort of things.
