Here's a very late period double 7" from Steel Pole Bath Tub released as the band was winding down. If you listen to this record back to back with "We Own Drrrills", you'd be hard pressed to say it was the same band. Gone are the blaring samples, the screaming feedback, or the dense grind that characterized the song structure. In it's place, you get a pretty straightforward, well produced, rocking set of five jams. Certainly, when I say "straightforward" I mean that as a relative term. Straightforward for Steel Pole Bath Tub is not the same as straightforward for Third Eye Blind you know?
Well, by 1995 I wasn't pay much attention to Steel Pole Bath Tub, so I never heard this particular record until well after the fact, and honestly, I think that allows me to like it so much. If you're not craving a noise soaked fuck-fest, but you still want something that gets your dander up, this 'lil ole record will do the trick.
* I just re-read this post after submitting it, and you know, I may have over-sold the idea that this record is toned down, because it's not boring or without its' own skronking feedback, industrial drumming, or weirdness. It has some of that too, it's just been tempered with a more traditional rock and roll approach. Anyway, just thought I should clear that up. Enjoy. Oh, and today is my birthday, please send checks, cash, and rare dubloons courtesy of this website. Thanks.
