IMMOLATO TOMATOES: IStumbling Block, Complete Recordings 86-88: CD

Jan 19, 2016

Forgotten English band Immolato Tomatoes are mid-’80s-as-hell, drawing influence from Revolution Summer D.C. bands and 7 Seconds, with a few late-Black Flag guitar skronks for good measure. The CD contains liner notes from the band and twenty-two tracks, which span three shoddily recorded and poorly preserved demos. Quite a few songs are repeated, giving the feeling of a local band spinning its wheels, but this project is still a worthwhile labor of love.
