Gays in the Military: ”People is Beautiful” Gulcher GULCH 429
Remember those albums back in the 60s that you just had to be seen carrying under your arm – Cheap Thrills, Kick Out the Jams, Troutmask Replica, An Evening With Wild Man Fisher? You know, the ones that were so original or outrageous you needed to have a copy to prove your credentials. Every era has its equivalents – be it The Wailers, Sex Pistols, Beastie Boys, Guns’n’Roses, Eminem – whatever.
Well, this offering is probably the modern equivalent. With the band’s ‘challenging’ names, rude song titles, tuneless tunes and sore throat singing, it’ll really go down well with rebellious youths of all ages – especially in redneck territory where it can be flaunted as a passport into all sorts of debauched activities. It’s a magnificently wild and wacky piece of shit. It’s just a shame that under-arm style 12” vinyl isn’t such common currency nowadays beyond the dancehall scene. The only objection I can raise is that bassist/vocalist Sir Lord Brian Puberty (see what I mean, Mum?) has the audacity to sport the aka Captain Trips, but that’s probably intentional to aggravate any Deadheads and other assorted ageing hippies who might have recovered enough to be paying attention!
