INJECTIONS, THE: “Prison Walls” b/w “Lies”: 7"

Mar 03, 2011

Dunno how they’re managing to pull it off exactly, but Last Laugh is on a tear, releasing über-rare punk 45s from the days of yore, and this one is no exception. Originally released in 1980, this gem by San Diego punkers The Injections has apparently fetched a pretty penny on the collector circuit. “Prison Walls” fancies itself a primitive anthem of empowerment and nearly succeeds as such. The flip is a quieter, moodier piece punctuated with occasionally louder outbursts. If you’re interested in this solely for the music, you’ll be pleased as punch with a copy of this. If you’re one of them collector snobs, you’d be a total ninny to pay oodles of dough for an original pressing when copies of this are so readily available.
