Slugfuckers ‎– "Transformational Salt" (Dogfood Production System ‎– Dogmat#2) 1981

With a name like 'Slugfuckers' you certainly ain't lookin' fer chart action, and with an LP like this, you definitely ain't!
There aren't too many looser combo's than this from the land down under. Falling apart abstract punk funk played by pale white boys from the Sydney suburbs who'd heard The Pop Group.
Thankfully, unlike The Pop Group, Slugfuckers don't resort to pounding the listeners skull with endless political soapboxing.
The lyrics, delivered in a half-assed quasi-conversational style, are suitably vague and abstract enough as to compliment the collapsing syncopation of the music. This is the kind of stuff I like to relax to of an evening, protected by a ring of salt.

They were a Sydney band. Sometimes they even borrowed SPK's drum machine.
