INSULTS, THE: Population Zero: 7”

May 20, 2014

The Insults’ second single gets another pressing from the original plates for those interested parties more interested in hearing the music than paying hyper-inflated prices for an original copy. Two blasts of primitive thud punk originally unleashed on the world by Ric-Mar Records in 1979, courtesy of the same band responsible for the endearingly obtuse “Stiff Love.” While folks who think Emerson Lake & Palmer at their most cerebral will likely be horrified by this, those who like their tunes short and beyond simple will find much here to their liking.
