Full Blown A.I.D.S. – "Full Blown A.I.D.S." (Wicked Sick Records – #7)


Oh yeah, we're in a what did I do today  general scenario bollocks ain't we just? Well I had a lovely meal on the Saturday last weekend, for me girlfriend's birthday...she ate as well if you were wondering,and Champagne for afters.
Then when we got back to where the car was parked ...it wasn't there,fucking gone !?...Turned out the cops towed it away and put it in their state of the art compound miles from town....and it won't be released until the local Pigs had checked my moth-eaten dodgy paperwork;....trouble was,all the paperwork is in the car innit? Miles away,with no way of getting there before the bastards close for the weekend. Had to call a friend to drive 50 miles round trip to shuttle us from one bunch of cunts to the other cunts.Got papers, showed cops,who fined me for having "bald" tyres...so they say!? and then back to the compound to show the man my cop endorsed paperwork,signed by yours truly,and pay the fucker 200 quid for the sheer joy of it all.....and no-one noticed I was pissed drunk?!
So as a result I wanna kill somebody and laugh at people with incurable diseases. So where to go for the soundtrack of this internalized destruction.....answer....anything by Anal Cunt I thought? Or even better something by Half of Anal Cunt called "Full Blown AIDS" !
The difference between GG Allin, and Seth Putnam is that one was a funny idiot,and the other one was just an idiot. The answer to this conundrum is up to you, but ,let's just say that GG never had a band called 'Full Blown AIDS'. One of the best band names I have yet encountered.
Anyone who is actually insulted by Anal Cunt and its derivatives should just get Full Blown AIDS themselves and die in my opinion.....especially jobs-worth traffic cops....nah...they weren't so bad,especially when confronted by my post-Brexit and totally illegal and out of date British Driving Licence from the early Nineties. I just lied,said I was a tourist,can't speak the lingo guvn'r (not far correct anyways),and they couldn't get us out of there quick enough.
This Sludgecore classic was committed to a cd-r just three years before Seth's untimely death by Heart Failure.....I suppose we should laugh,as that's what Seth would have done if any of us had died in such a gay way.....'Gay' being one of Mr Putnam's favourite unwoke words by the way,I inform,so as to deflect and Savage Wokery nastiness coming in my approximate direction. Basically, I just wanna be liked, and admire anyone who genuinely just Don't give a flying Fuck about anything or anyone.......unless you're in on the joke.
One would have thought that a person with such cathartic externalised hatred would escape the predictable heart attack finale wouldn't you? May well have had something to do with Seth being such a fat bastard.You can't externalise clogged up arteries....or can you?

Reagan Youth – "Youth Anthems For The New Order" (R Radical Records – RYR 831) 1984





Yeah, it's guess what I did today part 2.....answers on a postcard to Reagan Youth Superfan, Vladimir Putin,The Kremlin, Moscow via China via Taiwan.The one delivered by hand to that Chinese Dictator bloke by Nancy Pelosi is the winner, who will gets free lessons in roofing techniques by yours truly.
Shoot!...i gave it away slightly,because i spent the afternoon,gluing down tiles on my roof ready for the ruthless winter wind swooping down from the Pyrenees.It was cooler today,only a refreshing 31 degrees. 
Yesterday my travails were accompanied by Adrenalin O.D.,so today's US Hardcore classic has to be Reagan Youth ;who contrary to popular opinion were absolutely NOT the official KKK hardcore band.......although there were plenty more that were......not that I've really got anything against that on a musical level,in fact its adds a bit of spice to the proceedings,shakes things up a tad.There ain't much music these days that is strictly Taboo,and i guess racist redneck punk is certainly taboo...so if i'm attracted to the wrongness of it, then so will more sinister folk.
This copy of "Youth Anthems For The New Order"is one of those expanded complete deluxe edition that are so popular among the sideways-ly mobile middle Classes over 60 these days.Although Hardcore was made for eleven minute long 13 track 7" ep's, now we have two hour long versions including every piece of shite that a band ever recorded.
The original E.P is represented here on tracks 53-59, beefed up with endless alternative versions, live tracks,and alternate mixes.....rather silly.
As for the music, I'll substitute my personal feelings with an hilariously pretentious critique of a Don Van Vliet painting from 1989.....i feel the words used are perfect for analyzing Reagan Youth in 1984?

 'Beefheart's remarkable art - a raw vibrant collision of colours, muscular brushstrokes and vivid physical tableaux - has a strong element of mischief about it. He challenges your sense of dimension and natural order while reaffirming, with a kind of aggro-primitivist delight, his love of nature itself, a trademark theme of his music and poetry as well. One 1985 painting, 'Pig Erases Statue In Passing', has a dark maroon, rather elongated hog striding purposefully past an interlocking array of distorted hybrid figures, some humanesque, one the head of a steely grey horse. The pig stands out from the chaos as a beast of pride and purpose.' 

I also think that, like The Pig, Reagan Youth stood out from the chaos as a beast of pride and purpose...at least until the second Ep,anyway.
Personally,always courting the unpopular opinion,Don Van Vliet's paintings are largely pretentious shite,but fun to look at,decorative at best.
I'm pushing my luck expressing an interest in Red Neck Punk and dissing Captain Beefheart's frankly rubbish painting.....but admittedly not as bad as Ronnie Wood's irredeemably terrible tableaux.
It's been a long time since i've been called a nazi asshole, so here's hopin'!?
At least i fixed the roof without falling off.....although i came close after listening to some of the terrible production values on this Reagan Youth box set......did someone say "Reagan Youth Box Set."???
An "aggro-primitivist delight" indeed but certainly remarkably "Jejune" in content.I may even detect a Crass influence here,with the fold out poster and monotonous politics.
But tracks 53 to 59 are nearly perfect.In a way.

Adrenalin O.D. – "The Wacky Hi-Jinks Of Adrenalin O.D." (Buy Our Records – BOR-12-002-CS)


This is one of those "Hey guess what I'm doing today" posts so beloved of those Facebook,Instagram,and Twitter type twats.
We Bloggers look down our hooked noses at this kind of narcissistic behavior,and also one has to say it's all so terribly "Jejune"??????

None of the above applies to me of course.....except maybe all of it!
No, i'm not gonna post a photoshopped selfie,but i will tell you what I was doing today,and its jolly interesting,listen to this.....I was painting my roof terrace in 36 degrees C of ruthless greenhouse effected heat, whilst admiring the breathtaking views of the Larzac Plateau in les parcs du l'Haut-Languedoc (Unesco Listed),while listening to Adrenaline O.D.'e debut LP at high volume....such Hi-Jinks. One of the greatest moments in the evolution of US Hardcore,with sublimely chunky guitar sounds like electrified mud shoveled down yer dancing pants. The delicate juxtapositioning of these two extremes did not escape my appreciation......unlike the instructions on the paint tin which said not to use in temperatures above 29 degrees Celsius.....Whoops!>
But, what I like most of all about this rather fine platter,is that its so incredibly motherfuckingly "JEJUNE"! (according to definition number 1 of course.Definition 2 probably applies to this post).
