"At $1.79 used on Amazon, you really need to own this record. This band was a pioneer of performance art being central to their sound. This band shreds and the lyrics are sarcastic and delivered with a viciousness. The insert has great revolutionary photography of the band and its various cohorts, whose bodies are painted and perhaps slathered with raw egg. Richard Kern provides stellar photography. This record will not disappoint, and A National Healthcare is tight too. This band faded away but the legacy is right here."
YEAH, A VERY UNDERATED BAND

"I like the wierdness of this punky sounding band but I wouldn't necessarily classify them under punk. Maybe just avantegarde performance art. I saw a poster hanging at an independent record store here in Chicago and that's how I first noticed them. Everyone was body painted blue and had long black hair. It frightened me at first but nevertheless I was interested. I'm surprised Karen Black allowed them to use her name. I ordered from the record store a video copy of one their performances in New York City for Halloween and by the way they got Karen Black to host the gig but the video never came in. Remember this was in the late 90's before everyone's conversion to dvd. What happened to this band? Does anyone know? I do enjoy the tracks on the cd, but I can't remember the ones I like-have to give it a few more listenings."
