DEAD LAZLO’S PLACE: Growing Old Disgracefully: CD

Four-man punk band from Hollywood that brings it hard on this record. They all have nicknames too, which is cool. In the tradition of The Clash and Living Color, they also have their own theme song on this one—”Lazlo for Life.” I won’t even knock them for nicking a Chris Mars song title, “Horseshoes and Hand Grenades.” Strangely, there is another song here called “Ghettoblaster,” yet their model is not pictured in the liner notes. Nice work and I’m up for the next round, dudes!
