Few punk bands have remained in enterprise for so long as the veteran Canadian trio DAYGLO ABORTIONS has. Since 1979, the band (in a single configuration or one other) has been providing up no-holds barred punk rock, in addition to some really over-the-prime (and unforgettable) album cowl paintings/photographs. And the lads are again with their first studio album in twelve years produced by Rob Shallcross (and ninth studio set general), “Armageddon Survival Information”, which will probably be unleashed on March 25 by way of Unrest Data.
At present comprised of members Murray Acton a.okay.a. the Cretin (guitar and vocals), Willy Jak (bass), and Blind Marc (drums), DAYGLO ABORTIONS‘ new CD combines their distinctive mix of catchy punk rock, heavy metal, comical humor, and pissed-off political rhetoric with lyrical content material that challenges and disputes the verities of recent life. Basic DAYGLO ABORTIONS type goes hand in hand with emotions that aren’t so removed from bands like ANTISEEN, and their anti-social nihilism angle. Basically, that is the band’s greatest materials since their basic data from the ’80s.
Standout tunes embrace “Cockroaches” (which the Cretin explains, “Some contemplate them an infestation, others label them insane, addicts, victims of society. I feel they’re individuals identical to us. They’re in all places. In each metropolis. Pushing round buying carts piled excessive with their possessions. When the top comes, they would be the survivors. Then they may rule the world.”) and “The Dishwasher” (“When Jesus Bonehead left the DAYGLO ABORTIONS, he did it so he might pursue his true calling in life. To comply with that internal calling that had been dogging him since childhood. To turn into knowledgeable dishwasher. Do it for actual, within the huge league, with the professionals, within the kitchen of a skid street diner.”).
However the tune that’s feels like it is going to create fairly a stir is “The New Black” (“Seems to be like America obtained suckered in yet one more time. Who noticed that coming, and from the black man, and a democrat. Sure however properly educated by his banker bosses. And phrase on the road says his first job out of highschool was working for Henry Kissinger. Hey the child was related. Seems to be like the brand new black is as white because the wall road bankers he let raid the federal government piggy financial institution. What are they gonna attempt subsequent, a lady? Or a bigot? Let’s hope for Larry Saunders.”).
Lastly, the Cretin gives these ultimate phrases on “Armageddon Survival Information”: “Identical to Armageddon, our new album has been rumored to be popping out for ages now. In reality it says within the Bible, that in the long run occasions, the world will go completely to shit, everybody shall be sinning their goddamned asses off, and they’ll all be listening punk bands just like the DAYGLO ABORTIONS, who clearly could not give a shit about God or the Satan. Now these aren’t the precise phrases used in fact. However that was a very long time in the past, and what the fuck did they know anyway. Anyway…these days are right here, the world has gone to shit, Woman Gaga is rubbing her Devil-worshipping vagina everywhere in the Tremendous Bowl, and the brand new DAYGLO album is out. It has Mike Jak returning to hitch with the Cretin in some critical heavy guitar mayhem. The person who’s extra superb than god himself, Blind Marc on drums, and the man who’s such an instance of a keep-house bass participant he is underneath home arrest, Willy Jak. The ‘Armageddon Survival Information’ is gonna kick the shit out of you. It is gonna scare the fucking Jesus out of God and all his sissy angels. We’re unsure how Devil will take it, however we do not consider in him anyway, so fuck Devil. Let your head get smashed in by the ‘Armageddon Survival Information’, delivered to you by these Messiahs of the UN-sane, the DAYGLO ABORTIONS.”
