VARIOUS ARTISTS: The Funhouse Comp Thing: CD

This comp features the efforts of The Primate 5, Armitage Shanks, The Cripples, The Hollow Points, The Mexican Blackbirds, Earaches and others, meaning it’s heavy on the trash rock and synth-driven punk stuff. Although a little more diversity in its thirty-two tracks would’ve been swell, what’s here is top notch—energetic, loud and often fucked up in all the right ways. If for no other reason, pick it up for the Steaming Wolf Penis track.
