Mama Tick - Action City 7"
Label: Three Little Girls
Previously posted some years back as part of a Mama Tick discography, but I was listening to the 7" and thought it deserved it's own day in the sun. Plus, that discography link has long since been deleted (the great Mediafire purge of 2011 [or whenever]).
Two songs, one of which is a cover of Motley Crue's 'Shout At The Devil'. But it's Mama Tick, and Mama Tick are one of those "best band you never heard of" kind of bands, up there with La Gritona, Craw, and probably a bunch of bands I never heard of. And now maybe this record isn't as monumentally punishing as their 'Horsedoctor' 7", but it's still a gloriously messy, noisy, raw slab of destructo-rock. It's a great, great 7".
