Tag Recordings, 1996

Remember the soundtracks for the Crow movies, remember how the first two were pretty good, really good, actually; the fist one had Helmet and the Violent Femmes and Medicine and My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult and Rollins Band and Pantera covering Poison Idea's 'the Badge' on it, and how the second one had that smokin' live cut of Iggy Pop's 'I Wanna be Your Dog', it had PJ Harvey's 'Naked Cousin', which is probably my favourite PJ Harvey song.. it had that Filter tune 'Jurassitol' which was actually pretty good too?

Sure, all that. On the City of Angels OST though there was this one song called 'Lil Boots' by a band called Pet that had a singer that seemed to convey something that sounded just like the last shred of truth that could be possibly conveyed through the rapidly metastasizing cancer that was so-called alternative rock's input into what was mainstream culture insofar as it related to pop music as art... Fanfuckin'tastic vocals, man.

This is them, their only record. No clue if anyone in the band did anything else, but this is good.
