CHERRY KNOWLE: The Start of Something Big

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Cherry Knowle is Leatherface's first full length and is considered by some (including me) to be a minor hardcore classic. While their sound would coalesce into majestic post punk thunder two albums later on Mush, this album offers a preview of their later sound on a few cuts, particularly on "Colorado Joe/Leningrad Vlad" and "Discipline". There's also the added attraction of Frankie Stubbs' soulful rasp degenerating into an undecipherable growl on "Heaven" (a cover of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"), something he would later do to great effect on The Last's "Patrick Kills Me" and a couple of other songs.The album buzzes along at a rapid pace and will have you pressing REPEAT on your CD player more than once. Buy it and find out why! In fact, buy any Leatherface release you can find. With the exception of Mush and the new BYO Split Series CD, they are incredibly hard to come by. From Mush onward, they demonstrate over and over why they are among the top three or four bands in the world."

"Great CD. How can I describe the sound to someone who has never heard Leatherface? For an American not used to British hardcore imagine 80s post 'emo' DC hardcore (Soul Side, Swiz etc) mix with Motorhead style vocals and you come close to the sound of Leatherface. Decent lyrics, anyone who likes bands such as Snuff will like this one."
