Killdozer - Twelve Point Buck




There used to be a wonderful music paper called Sounds, that became my bible. They were doing a series of 7"s that were taped to the front and on the third, came New Pants And Shirt. It stood out like a broken thumb and blew me away. I jumped on the bus and went and bought this album on the strength of it. A short time later they were playing the Boardwalk and I managed to convince a bunch of friends that it would be a pleasant night out. Live, Killdozer were awesome and pummeled the audience into the floor. One of my friends left halfway through the first song, one vomited halfway through the second song (due to the visceral bass and drum counter punch), one looked like he'd been nailed to the back wall and I don't think he's spoken to me since, one sat in a corner rocking backwards and forwards and one fell asleep (!?!). I loved it!

Welcome to the world of Wisconsin's favourite cow killers: Dan Hobson on drums, Bill Hobson on guitar and Michael Gerald on bass and strangled vocals.

LP released on Touch And Go in 1989.

Fantastic,proper music this.
"L'il Baby Buntin'" is better in my opinion.

I got into Killdozer because of the exact same free 7". Seldom meet anybody who shares my love!

If you could see your way to joining Temporary Fandoms (Facebook group that listens to complete discographies of selected bands) it could be the back up I need to make the much maligned Killdozer Immersion happen https://www.facebook.com/groups/tempfans/ (I previously ran a Butthole Surfers immersion there).

Thanks for the offer but I hate facebook ... however, if anybody else wants to do the righteous thing ...
