Pyscho "Vertigo" 7" PATAC Records Review

vertigo 7
PATAC Records
Released: July 2010

Psycho released one of my favorite records in 1983. "8-Song E.P." is mandatory punk vinyl. 
Twenty seven years later, PATAC records released newly recorded material. This new music shows no evolution, no fantastic production, just stripped down, venomous, raw hardcore.  We would have it no other way.
Included is a version of "Legalize Murder". G.G. Allin recorded the infamous song with the same band that backed him on his "Freaks, Faggots, Drunks & Junkies" LP. The backing band for those tracks was BULGE, who just happen to be a Psycho side project band. Johnny X, Ed Lynch and Charlie Infection (also of Cancerous Growth and Ax/Ction Records) were the band on that GG album and they are on this 2010 7" with Cody Molest doing the vocals on this version of "Legalize Murder" (which isn't on that album by the way). 

Vinyl comes as a playable sawblade, certainly good enough to 
defend yourself against intruders during the looming apocalypse. 

Back in 1988, Morning Call newspaper reviewer Len Righi stated of the "Freaks..." LP, "I'd rather swim in Boston harbor than listen to this." 

Head on over here for an interview I did with Charlie Infection back in the day in FOE zine. Psycho and Cancerous Growth in the Lehigh Valley!

Take care,
