CD Reviews

...and then there were the Commandos
John A. Plait | San Buenaventura, California United States | 09/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ahh...the Commandos! Easily the most undeclared Champions of the emerging "Punk" scene in the late '70s and early '80s. For anyone interested in the music which destroyed the concept of "Corporate Rock" this recording is at the very forefront of the scene. I need not go through each individual recording as they speak positively for themselves. Chris Osgood on guitar, Dave Ahl on drums, and Steve Almaas on bass provided the cleanest most exciting, and entertaining music heard in years. Within the vastly underestimated Minneapolis Scene, they were considered the catylist - period. The Suicide Commandos provided both intuitiveness and direction to a new burgeoning non-corporate scene which had dominated the airwaves for years. Unfortunately, their music did not make it beyond the Twin Cities and for that matter beyond the clubs they played. Having spent many of my formidable rocking days in the TC's during the band's most passionate shows either warming up for the Ramones at Kelly's Pub (July 1, 1977) or rocking the house at Jay's Longhorn, I still fondly recall the day when the weekly independent art scene magazine "City Pages" declared the Suicide Commandos as, "the Twin Cities Best and Worst band of the year". I'm positive no other band has ever had such passionate feelings during their tenure as the "Kings of Rock 'n' Roll" and most defintely no one who lived in the Twin Cities during this unforgettable time will EVER forget this album."
The Way Punk Ought To be

"The suicide commandos make a record" is a fine example of the heart and soul of punk- if indeed punk has a soul- it is adrenniline on vynil and it doesn't reek of clinical depression the way its decendants tend to....the lyrics have a sense of humour without being precious or's a gem of an album guaranteed to remind you why the slam pit graces the earth."
