FANG - Welcome to Sammytown

My boy Mario pretty much is the shit. Over at Skull Kontrol he posted this gem on Fang. And it made my day. My whole fucking hungoverass day.

Soooo, today I got Fang's first lp. Released in 1982 on Boner Records. Pretty happy about the whole situation. California hardcore doesn't get much better than this. Sam McBride was the master lyricist, with such poetic gems as, Destroy The Handicapped, or how he gets to fuck Brooke Shields on The Money Will Roll Right In. Charmer, this guy. But seriously this album is a 10 / 10, 5 stars and the oft used, PERFECT. Too bad Tom Flynn (guitar) quit shortly after and good ol' Sam McBride killed his boo and got a prison sentence. He's out now, only served 6 years. He changed his name to Sammytown upon his release. Er, nice choice....Sammytown. Check the songs below and then check the dang vid even more below...

Go here to read the entire blog, dog. And here to be a jerk and download Fang - Landshark/Where The Wild Things Are - 1983 via the gloryhole that is Rapidshare. And I took some screen captures from the Welcome to Sammytown doc. Peep:
