Stiff Pole Records – Venice (1991)
Dan Destructo – vocals, guitar, keyboards
Scott Pacer – drums
Buzz Cockrill – bass
Pete Jay – guitar
This appears to be the first of many Stiff Pole Records. It starts out with a very straight Alice Cooper cover – You can’t go wrong with anything from the Alice Cooper Band. Mr. Destructo even sounds like Alice. Infidelity is a rather strange song (is that a keyboard I hear?) extolling the virtues of, well, infidelity. Ignorance is a stop- song exercise in condemning racism – it’s very 1986-ish hardcore – read “not essential”. FTMYIYD is more like it – closer to 1983 chaotic hardcore. You don’t see this around much – it’s good!
