King Snake Roost - Ground Into Dirt

Year: 1990
Label: Amphetamine Reptile / Aberrant

Very nasty, very dirty, very mean blues damaged noise rock from Australia. This was their last release, recorded by Butch Vig while on their final tour of the United States. The members would go on the play in different bands like Tumor Circus (with Jello Biafra, and members of Steelpole Bathtub), Bushpig (with Mark Arm and Steve Turner), and Lubricated Goat.

You know how Amphethamine Reptile had two styles, the garage rock and the pig fuckers? Well, this band took liberally from both camps to make some of the gnarliest shit to ever be released on that label.

you sir, are doing the world a tremendous service posting KSR on here.One of the few (only?) benefits of living in Ireland has been the fact that I picked up this and another KSR lp for a grand total of about $8 within the space of a week.

Now, if you can track down some Stickdog and post it here,you deserve a knighthod.

Great blog.More please.You have superb taste.
