A few times on this blog I declared Z or Y to be my favorite band of all times and spaces, for example CCM or Rose Rose. Now it's Victims Family's turn. When Primus came out with "suck on this", the general reaction in my village was "not bad for Victims Family wannabes". Victims Family is the greatest treasure ever hatched by the rock scene at large. The first two weeks after White bread blues came out, I used to wake up 30 minutes earlier every morning just to listen to it before going to my university classes. Strongly influenced by Frank Zappa, their jazzy virtuoso punk rock cannot faithfully be described with an alphabet. Just download and rejoice. I saw them several times between 1989 and 1992 and only Nomeansno, Primus or Shellac could put out performances of similar power. I want to be buried with these records.
If new to Victims Family, recommended order of introduction: all the albums, zer.
Or for the time-impaired superhuman: White bread blues, The Germ, 4 Great thrash songs and then everything else.
ABSOLUTE ÜBER CLASSIC ZER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apocalicious + voltage: vinyl rip.
Rest : CD rip.
I'll do another post with Saturn Flea Collar, Hellworms, Triclops, Freak Accident and all their other bands.
