Release Info: Slovenly - Riposte (1987)



I never heard Slovenly back in the '80s when they were a performing band. Though I was into lots of the SST groups, Slovenly just seemed to pass me by. Having said that, I don't think I would have liked this if I'd heard it back in 1987 - not punk enough or something. Anyway, I picked this up for a pound at a boot fair recently and I think it's worth sharing - kind of spidery, angsty art-rock with flashes of Beefheart inspired slide guitar action that some of you may appreciate.

Here's a lovely fan video for the album's last track (which isn't overly representative of the sound of the rest of the LP, but hey ho):
