BLOOD RED BABY BLUE: The Colors of Chaos: LP

This debut out of Alabama combines shock rock, goth, and good ol’ fashioned punk. If you didn’t know they were into BDSM by lookin’ at ‘em, the name of the lead singer oughtta tip you off: Miss Stress Tamantha. Like The Genitorturers, BRBB bring elements of performance art to their shows where they’ve been known to flog members of the audience. Part 45 Grave, part Naked Raygun, their awesome guitar work and galloping drums left me bouncing and bobbing. However, there were times I really wanted the vocals to be as punched up as the rhythm section. Still worth a listen just for the high energy and quality tunes; plus, the colored vinyl is sick: half blood red and half baby blue. Definitely recommended for those who desire a little more punishment in their lives.
