"This is actually a re-issue of two VERY FINE Killdozer LP's on one CD: "Little Baby Buntin", and "12 Point Buck". If you are easily offended by high-brow humor posing as low-brow obscenity then don't buy this. However, if you enjoy blasting massive wall-of-sound guitar rock fronted by shrieking baritone vocals singing about murder, insanity, grain silos, meat, scar tissue, and other niceties then you will enjoy it. Of special note is the cover of Neil Diamond's "I am, I said" that really brings out the, uh, existential beauty of the lyrics."

"Think you've heard it all? Grown jaded at cheap shock-rock? Well, bubba, this one's for you, if you can find a copy. Just put on Killdozer's dread masterpiece "The Rub" from "Little Baby Buntin'" (the vastly superior half of this two-album cd). I don't know what I love more about it--the biting irony or the "I LIKE COFFEE" coda at the end. I've recently tracked down a copy of this disc (to replace one I lost), and it's a sweet balm to my soul.Make no mistake, no ifs, ands, or buts, this ain't easy listening. (Many of Killdozer's songs, however, despite their violently loud presentation, are surprisingly sweet-natured.) It's not music your spouse is going to let you play inside when they're around. But it's good stuff. Great stuff, in fact. "12 Point Buck," the first half, is a good album, with songs about disaster movies, customer service, and Flannery O'Connor. "Little Baby Buntin'" is a great album, and the pinnacle of Killdozer's output. "The Rub" is a breathtaking epic, "The Ballad of My Old Man" is a tender expression of filial devotion, "Cyst" is an oddly sympathetic look at an alien parasite, and, as another reviewer has pointed out, the cover of "I Am, I Said" does, in fact, highlight the existential beauty of the lyrics. If you're tired of wimps and poseurs, these are your boys."
Pure genius

"I was working at a warehouse in Berkeley in the late '80s when I was first indoctrinated into the cult of Killdozer. Anne from the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 put a pair of headphones on my head and told me to listen. What I heard was the opening vocal salvo of "Hamburger Martyr" from the brilliant "Burl" EP. Nobody can say "... you!" and mean it quite like Michael Gerald. Well, that was enough; I was hooked.
This pair of CDs (Little Baby Buntin' and 12 Point Buck) captures Killdozer at what I consider the peak of their career. The original lineup intact, they were perfecting their midwest, white ..., tongue-in-cheek, grain elevator disaster humor that had so vividly developed over their first few records. While some may prefer the more polished sound of Paul Zagoras' guitar work on the later albums, I'm a Hobson man. If it's possible for bombastic, distorted guitar noise to be "funny"...well, this is it. Brilliantly produced by a pre-Nevermind Butch Vig, both of these albums feature Killdozer's trademark wall of sound and growling, spitting (yet hilarious) vocals. This is music for drinking cheap liquor on the porch and shouting at cars.
If you buy these for no reason other than the recipes from the Killdozer Bake-off (try the watermelon pie!), you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!"
