Full title - Ever Feel Like Killing Your Boss? Reissue of long out-of-print hardcore album by one of punk's most notorious and subversive bands ever. The Feederz deliver with their unique blend of rage, unmatched intensity and biting humor. 17 tracks including 'Have You Ever Been Mellow', 'Bionic Girl' & Jesus Entering From The Rear'. 2002.
"This album is the embodiment of punk rock. If someone has no idea what punk rock is, then play them this album. Everything from the title of the album itself to the lyrics are designed to shock and subvert. Just listen to songs like Jesus Entering throught the rear and Gut Rage, which starts with one of the best lines ever "Vandalism, as beautiful as a rock in a cop's face" - just brilliant. 1984 paints a picture of Orwellian horror and shows us that we are living in it right now, only its not a statist regime that dictates our lives, its corporations and businesses. Musically, the Feederz sound alot like the Dead Kennedys, but arent some cheap rip off, they have a distinct style that belongs to them alone. Frank Discussion does sound alot like Jello Biafra on first listen, but his voice soon becomes distinct and unique. People who find mainstream artists such as Eminem offensive would soil themselves if they heard this album."
Where's the sandpaper?

"The 12" had black sandpaper on the cover."
This defines what punk IS and should ALWAYS BE

"I would give this album 10 stars if I could- the music; the lyrics the whole package is so snarling with rage that it's immpossible to ignore this record and the impact this had on punk music--Real punk, not some Blink182/Green Day rip-off of the word "punk"
Great inside artwork done by Frank Discussion himself sure to provoke feelings of distain for society. I would recommend sitting down and reading through all the lyrics first just to get an idea of what you're in for- a blast of real punk rock, with intellegence and a message to spread-Don't Submit!"
Like NOTHING you've EVER heard before!

"Earning 'High Marks' (& Stars!) for BOTH 'Uniqueness & creativity' we here have ~ Feederz: Ever Feel Like Killing Your Boss!! Annoying & "Offensive" ESP. to record store merchants with its SANDPAPER laden cover ("INDEED!") which DAMAGED other "PRODUCTS" in their record bins! I well remember that my copy was chewing through the cellophane quite nicely with LARGE healthy square Of BLACK Sandpaper!! My initiation to these fellows came from the: "LET THEM EAT JELLYBEANS" Comp. containing the IMMORTAL & insiteful: "JESUS ENTERING FROM THE REAR". Drawing alot Of negative attention, CONTEMPT & HATRED. yeah I Outta know as my band "covered" this inflamatory tune 'back in the day' & 'managed' to garner ALL three!! Later On had me taking Frank Discussion's advice Of those years ago AND STEALING the elusive (& 'Rare') FEEDERZ (JESUS) Ep
Anyways Onto The review... KICKing things Off with: "Have You Ever Been Mellow" and hitting a DAMN NEAR FEVERED pitch by track 3; Bionic Girl (an ALL-TIME personal fave!)and just doesn't let up for a minute in its ASSAULT Of BRUTAL FRANKness!! ~Strange as this my sound, I'd swear that at SOME RARE times on this that this wrekkird 'Sounds like' it was actually "PRODUCED"!! Which i think actually takes away from ALL this!!...then again maybe that What its 'Supposed to do' -See *NOTE* below Although I GOTTA SAY: "If yer really looking for 'OFFENSIVE' Ya GOTTA GO with: "Teachers in Space" WHICH IS WAY WAY MORE OFFENSIVE, TO MY memory anyways, than: "Ever Feel Like Killing Your Boss" was...
A CAUTIONARY *note* though: The PLENTY RAW: JELLYBEANS version Of: "JESUS ENTERING..." IS NOT The verson On the album here, renamed simply: "JESUS", i refer to this as: "The Coral version" for the simple reason that; yup you guessed it; ITS GOT CHORAL ON THE CHORUS!! which is okay i guess, though i MUCH prefer The: JELLYBEANS version myself... again, at times seems as though its "produced" OR "too produced", perhaps just EXTREME PREJUDICE Of mine, for these guys OR for what i've come to expect from them... ~Still though a "WORTHY" effort from these blokes!"
One of the Best Punk Albums Ever

"This is probably the most important punk album since Never Mind the Bollocks. It combines a unique snarling rage with true wit and intelligence to produce this masterpiece. Political (or as they put it anti-political) but not preachy. But don't worry - you won't find the naive politics of bands like the Crucifux, the Dead Kennedys or Crass here. The impact of the songs of this album can't be overstated. I just wish they were still around. I wonder what they would be like now."
