Second installment of the Dangerhouse discography and we start to see the real diversity that made this label so fuggin’ cool………..
The WEIRDOS 7″ is seriously one of the best american punk records to EVER be released. Both songs are classics and should be part of every new/young punks lesson plan. The ALLEYCATS 7″ is solid and driving but also has that nervous energy that makes alot of early punk records great. A terribly underrated band as far as I’m concerned. The X 7″ is probably my least favorite Dangerhouse record (and that’s saying something). X was a fuckin’ great band and this record is an early document to their unique sound. Once this band hit their stride though, they were unstoppable. And last but not least, the second BLACK RANDY 7″. Thankfully, someone at Dangerhouse recognized the crazed genius that was Black Randy and put some his outburst to vinyl. It also helps that David Brown and Pat Garrett (dangerhouse’ founders / owners) were in his backing band, the METROSQUAD. Randy’s ode to black soul/funk music filtered through the brain of mental patient. Two original songs and two bastardized versions of the James Brown classic.
