Laughing Hyenas - Crawl

Label: Touch And Go
Year: 1992

You realize we haven't gotten around to posting any Laughing Hyenas in this place? Doesn't seem particular right or just does it?
I thought maybe we could ease into the band by starting with this four song ep. That way, it's not a major investment of your time and energy, and if you don't care for them, oh well, no great loss. No great loss of your time or energy that is. It would be a great loss of our respect for your musical tastes, but then again, what do you care about what we think? Probably not a lot. Not a lot at all.
The personnel on this recording represent Negative Approach, Easy Action, L7, The Necros, Streamlined, Escape Pod, and Meatmen, but don't expect "Cripple Children Suck" (we should be so lucky). This record comes after the departure of the original drummer and bassist quit the band, so it serves a document of the band going from bruising blues punk dirges, to scraping blues rock dirges. See the difference? Well, you'll hear it. This record is a little cleaner and smoothing around the edges, but still drags the songs through a dirty gutter before hocking them up into a loogie and spitting them in your face. Good shit indeed.

I LOVE the Bryan Adams by way of Swans opener - "I DON'T WANNA LIVE FOREVAH!!". Larissa Strickland was a killer guitarist - big influence on me.
