Beefeater Need a Job 12″

Sadly, this may be the last record we see by this great DC band: it appears they too have split due to personnel changes. BEEFEATER was never a cliché normal thrash band and they proved it once again with the 12” with hard-hitting, really thought-out lyrics that stand out. Some of the songs have an experimental feel. But it’s the title track that rocks the best. They’re missed already by me.

H.R. It’s About Luv LP

Aha, here we have for a mere few dollars what government-supported scientists have been paid millions: conclusive evidence that prolonged use of marijuana rots the brain. All kidding aside, this record “blows it” (tee-hee). No, really, if your “bag” (ha-ha) is “fusion” music, this does it: punk, jazz, rock, reggae, horns, synth, etc., etc. “Dread”ful (ho-ho).
