RUGGED EDGE – Gangs in Heat / Two Face 7”

No Label – Miami – 1986

I usually tried to avoid seeing these guys – back in the day. I didn’t always succeed. Around 1986, I was fairly sick of watching a bunch of dudes clobber each other on the dance floor to a unwavering loud dull roar. Two face is a slower, unspectacular song – and dumb. Gangs in Heat is similarly dumb, but has a nice Motorhead-thing going. I will have to do more research (buy their other record(s)) to determine if I was wrong to avoid these ne’er-do-wells.

  1. "Gangs In Heat" has a nice Battalion Of Saints feel. The other song is not as good. The Rugged Edge 12" is also a mixed bag.
