feedtime – “Today Is Friday” – [S-S Records]
It is probably safe to say this was project carefully considered, compiled and wildly desired to be put together by the mighty S-S Records‘ Scott Soriano (maybe even ripped from the virtual arms of Seattle’s SubPop?). A project of all previously unreleased material by this Aussie noise rock outfit, formed in 1979, that ultimately crashed and burned due to the lead singer unable to keep it all together. Personally, as a serious fan of Amphetimine Reptile sounds of the 90’s, this thing completely schools all those fucking great bands and releases. There are three covers on here (Richard’s and Jagger’s) Street Fighting Man. Fear‘s blown out I Don’t Care About You and Flipper‘s Life. The rest is all feedtime including some ripping sax on nice and possums (the live versions). Overall, it’s a miraculously wreck-less (front-page, top-o-the fold headlines screaming “Unbelievable” where there should have been gallons of blood and gore, no survivors at all, after a horrendous jack and cocaine fueled vehicular manslaughter night on the town fiasco) straight up stripped down wreck n’ role affair. In other words, the whole thing is as dangerous as a rabies infested grinning possum let loose in a kindergarten (have you seen how many fucking teeth one of them bastards has got?). Thank you SS Records for your labors of love.
