MR. CALIFORNIA AND THE STATE POLICE: I’m Gonna Kick You in the Head: CS

The solo recording project of Terry Ryan, Mr. California And The State Police calls to mind some of the early four-track recordings of Devo at their most abrasive. Originally released on CD and vinyl back in 2003, this seventeenth anniversary reissue is the first time I’m Gonna Kick You in the Head has appeared on cassette. While this might seem a strange anniversary to re-release an album, it’s appropriate for the weirdness that is Mr. California. –Paul J. Comeau (Crass Lips, [email protected])
