More classic-era Misfits on a Vee-yet-Nam psych-out acid trip with a touch of rockhard umph and stun-gun bass from these Chicago-ites. Their LP keeps getting better if you ask me, and "Blood Zombie" is one of the better cuts from it. The flip keeps up the same downer-vibe momentum, with another song about a girl. I'm honestly quite surprised that this band is good for some reason. The sleeve lists a third track that does not actually appear on the record, keeping up the Goodbye Boozy tradition of jukebox-friendly singles.(RK)
Boy, did I not like Vee Dee when I saw them. It's been a while, and either they've improved mightily, or this showcases them at their best. Likely a bit of both. "Blood Zombie" is the clear winner here, nasty sounding and catchy rockpunk, and "Her Eyes" is a nice (but somewhat less catchy) rocker in a similar vein. More Chicago's hard to keep up with all that's goin' on down there, and I know there's a lot more to come, so strap yerself. What's the deal with "Somebody Loves You"? (TK)
