Культовый прожект, одна из первых групп Джеймса Плоткина (далее - Khanate, Flux, Lotus Eaters, Khlyst и еще куча формаций различной степени известности). У самих O.L.D. альбом в подобном стиле - угарнейший, раздолбайский, притрэшованный йумар-грайнд - всего один, уже на втором полноформатнике Lo Flux Tube из группы был выгнан ударник, а сам Плоткин и его вечный соратник Алан Дубин взяли стилистический курс на индустриальные безумства в духе Godflesh.
When Napalm Death meets Spazztic Blurr - 97% ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'Yes, that would be the best way to describe these three American boys having noisy fun a whole 36 minutes long. Or is it ‘when Carcass meets Mucky Pup’ or 'When SOB meets The Accused''? Who cares, this is not just funny, it’s bloody good as well!
On this album O.L.D. still had a real drummer, Ralph Pimentel. The guy looks like Harko from BOOM but he can play his grind adequately. Just like their music, the band looks filthy. Sticky hair, unshaven faces, second hand leather jackets and hanging out at dirty toilets. Image is everything, right?
As said, the majority of this album is dirty, extreme and fast grindcore but it is the experimental and funny stuff that set the band apart from contemporary artists. The high pitched vocals on “Supermarket Monstrosity” including the funny lyrics about being scared of old folks makes it hilarious! “Bathrooms Rule” is built around funny lyrics and even comprehensible! The nursery rhyme in “Die In Your Beauty Sleep” is memorable and so is the parody on operatic vocals on “Screaming Geezer”.
The grindcore element is here is great as well. Just try the two openers “Total Hag” and “Corpse Full of Gunk” and you’ll have to admit that even without the humor O.L.D. still are one of the better old school grindcore bands from ’88. An important element here are thrashy stop-and-go attitude of the compositions and the very distinct vocals of Alan Dubin. His screams are unequalled within the grindcore scene, even today.
No forgetting to mention that, despite playing raging grindcore, James Plotkin’s guitarsound is already pretty different from other extreme bands from that period. I do not know why but I think he uses some kind of chorus effect over it all the time. Whatever it is, it gives the album even more individual character.
So in short, if you like grindcore: get this album. If you like humor: get this album. If you like both: you will already have this album. This album has character and still stands firm in its originality. Once you’ve heard this album you’ll scream “One More Time Grandma” at least once a month for the rest of your life. Guaranteed!'
