KILLER KANE BAND: Self-titled: 7″

This record was unexpected. Arthur “Killer” Kane put together a post-New York Dolls band featuring future W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie “Lawless” Goozeman on vox. The cover is a pic of Kane, looking skeletal and at death’s door (he was probably still in his twenties when this pic was taken!). The music is kind of plodding, more in an average ‘70s rock kind of way. I get an early Alice Cooper vibe from these songs. The first time I played this record I played it at 45 RPMs on account of the big hole, but after about thirty seconds I realized it’s a 33. Try it for the first song (“Mr. Cool,”) it’s pretty strange. I know about the world?
