Drunks With Guns - Second Verses
this is, quite simply, one of the best punk rock albums you will ever hear. it's not even really an "album" in the traditional sense - it's a compilation of songs... but it is the ultimate document of Drunks With Guns' musical output. this band is hugely under-rated and it's too bad because no other band has captured suburban misanthropy and punk angst half as well as Drunks have in one song (Wonderful Subdivision). then besides the obvious hit, you have another nine brilliant original slabs of sheer inebriated hate sludging along until you submit, shit yourself and fall down. i put this recording on the same page as anything you got by Flipper, Black Flag, No Trend, Die Kreuzen, Killdozer... go ahead and try to find a better bass guitar sound than that. you can't. not on any rock record. in short, this is one of the best things you will ever hear in your life.
Notes:This CD contains various songs from Drunks With Guns recorded between 1984 - 1990, some rare stuff from their first singles but also unreleased material.
