Heroin Sludge
Mar 08, 2006, 08:43
Lately, I've been groovin' to some early proto metal with blatant lyrics about shooting up. Not that I'm a big heroin enthusiast, but the shit sounds so much meaner and white trashier with junk lyricism over killer feedback, fuzz and wah wah. Please check out:

Lincoln Street Exit- "Drive It" 1970

Raven- "Back to Ohio Blues" 1975

Bulbous Creation- "You Won't Remember Dying" 1970

These albums are simultaneously hilarious and depressing; two factors, which in my opinion, are the fundamentals of great rock and roll.

*The entirety of the Lincoln Street Exit album strangely reminds me of the later half of the MC5- True Testimonial documentary when everything starts falling apart. Very weird.
