QUEERS, THE: Beat Off: CD

My third favorite Queers record has been remixed and re-released on Asian Man! (Love Songs for the Retarded and Don’t Look Back are just a bit better.) If you already have this record, here’s an excuse to get a fresh copy, and if you don’t own it, you should, so pony up the cash. Essentially the same as the original Lookout! release, but it also includes a good Angry Samoans cover as the closer. Ben Weasel has also contributed some significant and insightful liner notes regarding the spirit and the persona of the Queers, a welcome addition to the package. A great record made even better.
