NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS: Escapes from Hell: 7″

If novelty records and collecting go with your mindset, this is a record for you. First of all, this is limited to 105 copies. For the novelty part, you might like or hate the packaging. I personally hate the packaging. The cover is a photocopy that is glued and stickered to the record! On top of that, there is a piece of glue in the hole where you would place the record on the turntable. That was record label owner Jean Luc’s idea. After the laborious effort to get through all that, you have to be careful on how you play the record. The record plays in reverse so you have to start from the center. Since this a single-sided 7”, the three tracks contained are engraved in parallel on two grooves, so depending on the groove, you get different songs. Also, one groove plays at 45 RPM, while the other plays at 33 RPM. That was my brother Katz’s idea, who happens to be the guitarist and a person who knows about collecting. Did I go through the trouble? Nope. I called my brother to make me a copy on tape because I’m a lazy ass. On bass is Richard Ramos who heads the Agitate 96 record label. The drummer is the infamous Mike Thrashead who has played for the likes of Bad Acid Trip and Naked Aggression and is currently in Reagan SS. I hate to say that I forgot who is on vocals. I need to stop drinking while I do reviews. Musically, they are noisecore, fastcore thrash. Songs that last as long as a blink of your eye – if you’re lucky – or music for those with A.D.D.
