"Let Them Eat Rock is a killer first release from this Boston area quintent (at least when this was recorded). Members of the band come from older Boston outfits such as the Lyres (garage rock) and the Bags. The band dresses and sings as if they were 17th-18th century Western European aristocrats. Their songs are typically short, powerful, and well written. Also, if you have the chance check out their live show -- they're terrific! One of their former members was a Clinton speechwriter -- however I think he left the Crust for political reasons. Check out the Washington Post's web site, maybe you can find the article (I think it's from early '98). However, if you like hard driving, bang-your-head stuff, buy this record. Their second recording is not quite as good as this, but it's still definitely worth buying. Also, if you do like this stuff, check out the Titanics, and the Satanics -- offshoot bands."
A great disc of roque and roll!

"What would Bon Scott-era AC/DC sound like if they lived in 18th-century France? Upper Crust give you a good idea, and they kick derriere! The Crust smash out bourgouoisie-ripping tunes about the trials and tribulations of being a rich landowner or ht burden of thrashing the peasants! Rockin', rollin', and hilarious, the Upper Crust would sound great even if they were a "straightforward" band. Tired of bands that take themselves too seriously? Then the Upper Crust is for you!"
Bloody good roque, old boy

"The Upper Crust is a great band. Beneath their makeup and veneer of aristocratic sophistication lies a core of vanity and aristocratic sophistication. Rock and roll should be fun, damnit, and this band makes it so. Many of Lord Bendover's songs will make one think of AC/DC or Cheap Trick, while Lord Rockingham's tunes bring to mind Grant Hart's contributions to Husker Du, and of course the inevitable comparison with the makeup and costumes is Kiss. But to hell with categorization and analysis. Listenting to the Crust is second only to watching them perform live in joy and fun. Buy this CD!"
