S.W.A.T. – “Deep Inside a Cop’s Mind” – [Amphetamine Reptile]

abacus   11/29/2011   12-inch, A Library

The soundtrack to the new police state from shit disturbers Adam Parfrey and Jim Goad, authors/publishers of the controversial and misanthropic zines Apocalypse Culture and Answer Me!, along with the folks from Poison Idea. This silly perverse satire is dedicated to the boys in blue, “the only real people left,” because while you “sit and criticize like the cowering, two-bit punk you are,” they’re out protecting you from the “killers, rapists, dustheads, welfare cheats, puke-smeared drunks and crusty schizos.” Seriously though, this is a bunch of goofy covers with self-glorified cocky cop catchiness inserted throughout along with clips from Dragnet and police broadcasts from the LA riots mixed in. An expose of real life on the streets for all you bleeding heart do-gooders. Each side has an interlude of peace officers talking philosophy at a diner that shouldn’t be missed (cameo from Anton Lavey and Boyd Rice!). All the lyrics are clean but they might get some local police to start profiling for KFJC bumper stickers. Watch out!
