LEGIONAIRE’S DISEASE BAND: Rather See You Dead: 7”

May 30, 2014

Another much-ballyhooed punk single is pulled from obscurity, dusted off, and reissued for the teeming masses. In this case, though, I dunno if “obscure” quite fits, seeing as the title track has been comped, booted, and otherwise available in different forms for decades now. Ah, no matter, as this time ‘round yer getting it, along with its flip, “Downtown,” in its original and much preferred form. If ye ain’t been privy to hearing it prior, yer getting for your buck two sludgy sides of primal, prime-grade sloppy punk that gets under yer skin like scabies and just won’t leave you be. File it next to your copy of the Fuck Ups’ FU 82 EP and watch your shelves start to rot.
