Another hit from Goodbye Boozy, this time from Chicago’s newest noise makers. The A-Side, “1-900-get-Inside”, is a straight killer from the sessions that spawned their debut single for Electrorock Records, and is unavailable elsewhere. The flip is from their soon-to-be classic debut LP on Criminal IQ, but you NEED this A-Side, trust me. Ryan Kill-A-Watt once told me these guys were “better than any other stupid punk bands out there,” and his words were oh so true. As always, limited to 300 copies, and Gabriele always has more winners lined-up. Give me more. (RK)
I'd heard a lot of good stuff about these guys, and from the sounds of this it looks like this is on of those rare cases of the hype being well deserved. The title track is a quick, nasty blast of pure punk rock served up like it should be: with loads of aggression and snotty as hell. The whole song just blisters along building up momentum for the finale where they finally break into a coda of "1-900-Get-Inside." I like a band that makes you wait for your chorus…it builds anticipation and all that. The B-side doesn't disappoint either. It's over and done with before you know it starts, but it left me wanting to spin it again. This single wouldn't have sounded out of place on Rip Off during the glory years of the mid-nineties. Really good, and I can't wait to hear the LP. This is a limited edition of 300, so snatch it up quick or get left out. (SS)
