FANG - Landshark/Where The Wild Things Are

Two LPs originally released on the band's own Boner Records in 1982 and 1983, respectively, then rereleased on one CD in 1997. Songs from these amazing shit-punk albums would later be covered by such bands as Green Day ("I Wanna Be On TV") and Nirvana ("The Money Will Roll Right In"). The drear and drone of tracks like "An Invitation" and "Law And Order" are broken up by spastic bursts of classic bile on "Drunk And Crazy" and "Skinheads Smoke Dope".

Fang would later release other albums that were not very good, and singer Sammytown would go on to serve time in prison for killing his girlfriend. Oh well.
