THRASHERS, THE: Robot Invaders from the Death Galaxy: LP

A lotwent into this LP… double-printed jacket (outside and in), printed sleeve, glossy lyric insert, and vinyl sticker. Packaging ain’t cheap. Strip away the excessive graphic trappings and you’re left with adeptly played interstellar attack robot surf rock (from Canada). However, Robot Invaders… is all over the map. Cosmic artwork, X Files, or mob themed band pics, and lyrics that do nothing to connect the themes equals a shtick that don’t stick. One song did have the singer sounding like the Horny Mormons, so that’s a plus.
