SLUSH: Frog Water: LP

If a young and angry Wayne Coyne had fronted the Butthole Surfers on their self-titled first release, you would have something somewhere in the ballpark of Slush. Art-damaged drug rock with enough hardcore vibe to not worry about them ever signing to a major or getting on your local college radio. No lyric sheet or freaked out art work (the band cover photo does include a penis-shaped water bottle), Slush just lets the music do the face melting. Translucent green cassette. –Matt Seward (Personal Militia, pmr.storenvy)
