LANSBURY: Everything Went Static: LP

Lansbury play ugly ‘n’ angry metal punk, like Poison Idea. The riffs are catchy as hell, hitting that Motörhead balance of thrash and blues, and the musicianship is tight, allowing the band to transition into breakdowns and well-planned solos without sounding like a punk band with one metalhead member who whines if he doesn’t get a chance to shred. Ten songs on one side, the other side being dedicated to anti-TV silkscreening. I’d get in the pit for this.
