A long-overdue vinyl repress of this 1977 US punk masterpiece. The Consumers were originally just three guitar players with no rhythm section-Paul Cutler, Mikey Borens and lyricist / lead singer David Wiley, all bonded by love of psychedelic Euro-prog jazz like Henry Cow, Gong and Robert Wyatt-whod stopped listening to rock n roll after Bowies Spiders from Mars came out around 1972. By 77 our guys had re-discovered rock through Britpunk pub raunch like The Sex Pistols and The Damned. Cutler and high school bud Wiley had even driven all the way to L.A. determined to hunt down a copy of The Pistols "Anarchy in the UK" single. In the pre-Internet days there wasnt a record store anywhere in Arizona that had even heard of it, let alone stocked it. All My Friends Are Dead was The Consumers "fuck you" to Phoenix since nearly all their gigs there ended in brawls with long-haired rockers and other redneck gnarlers pounding on the band for daring to play punk rock in public in 1977! It didnt take long to suss. Head on out. Just before they packed for L.A. in early 78 the band managed to get themselves on tape during a single session blow-out frenzy. All My Friends Are Dead successfully captures The Consumers as a pissed-off-yet-still-fun, no-frills, punk-rockin band... exactly who and what they were during their extremely short and sweet existence. After a few months of violent and intense live shows at The Masque and other local punk dives, the band finally imploded. Some headed back to Phoenix and some stayed on in L.A. to form new bands. Cutler went on to form the goth / punk 45 Grave and still later joined the Dream Syndicate. Wiley formed the Pasadena art rock Human Hands. Sadly, today there are only two surviving members of The Consumers. Sadder still, what passes for punk rock today is easy listening when compared to All My Friends Are Dead. Originally planned to be released on Dangerhouse Records, first issued by In The Red in 1994 in a limited edition of 500 copies and long-out-of-print on vinyl.

BLACK LIPS - LET IT BLOOM

Higher price! While still skuzzy and raw, this LP contains their catchiest and most melodic moments to date. If Royal Trux had listened to the Troggs instead of the Rolling Stones, they might sound like this (though the album does sound quite Stonesy at times). "The ... read more »
