F.U.K.: “Road Kill” b/w “I Got a Head”: 7”

Jul 25, 2018

Archival 1977 wailing from a one-shot Detroit band, featuring future Mission Of Burma shaver Roger Miller (presumably best known for his song “You Can’t Reach for Your Revolver in a Buffalo Herd”). The A side is a female-sung head-cleaver that is simultaneously tight and all over the place, reminiscent of some sort of Dark Fastbacks at their fastest, interspersed with flipped-out guitar bits that almost reach the level of The Mad’s lunatic saxophone playing in the Blow Your Fucking Mind department. The B side is Roger playing all the instruments and fails to captivate me in parallel measure. BEST SONG: “Road Kill.” BEST SONG TITLE: “I Got a Head.” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The band’s one show was on Halloween, 1977. –Rev. Nørb (Hozac)
