Black Helicopter - That Specific Function

Year: 2003
Label: Traktor 7

Another entry from the Boston skuzz rock contingent, this one chronicles the real life ramblings of a drunken madmen named Kerm who would frequent the convenience store that two members of the band worked in and dispense a bizarre mix of life lessons, conspiracy theories, and warnings. The band itself comes from prior Boston noise rockers Kudgel and Green Magnet School, and was originally going to be GMS, but the guy decided to give it a new moniker.
Musically, it's more straightforward and less violent than some of their Boston contemporaries, but no less disturbed or dark. Menacing rock delivered without relying on the dirtiest distortion pedal or throat peeling vocal barks.
Sidebar: I have seen a couple different track listings for this record, but this is the version I've had for awhile now, sooooooo....suck it?
