Murphy’s Law


Murphy’s Law Murphy’s Law LP

A supposedly “fun” album by this New York band, one of many that play good music (punk—as opposed to thrash metal—in this case) but who make it difficult to enjoy because of their advertised ignorance (homophobia, among others). Accompanying press release actually lauded singer Jimmy Gestapo for his “Donohue” performance, as well as containing his self-description as a “macho goon.” Real fun.

Murphy’s Law Bong Blast cassette

Some real silliness from this New York outfit. Musically, it consists of thrash, punk, metal, and reggae all thrown together in a humorous way. Lyrically, I wouldn’t want to think that these guys are serious, because the ideas are even more goofy than the musical arrangements.
