THE UNDERTOAD - ERNT!
This album, released in tape-only form, was the Undertoad's fourth set of songs.
It features a more aggressive NYC Sonic Youth influenced noise rock style, played tighter, as well as lyrics and arrangements heavily influenced by The Pixies.
The song "Black Francine" for example, at just over a minute in length, packs a short but powerful wallop.
Meanwhile, the song "Queer Nation" (composed in 1992) is typical of the Undertoad's uncompromising (if a little didactic) politics.
Then there is also "Why Did I Vote For A Madman? (Anti-David Duke Machine)" an in-your-face little ditty about the rise of the Conservative Right in the south on the back of Southern Strategy style politics.
The album's attitude was inspired by bands of the era such as Consolidated and Public Enemy as well Billy Bragg, Black Flag, The Minutemen, Gil Scott Heron, Woody Guthrie and The Watts Prophets...all musicians who wove into their work clever ways to encourage political and social change.
Available as a 24 bit download for only $1.00.
In addition, for a pittance you can purchase a package which includes downloads as well as, via US Postal Service, a CD and DVD with high resolution versions of the songs and bonus videos. Whatta baergain. Order now!
