Motley Crue! Excellent! Relevant!

Ok, yeah.

Anal Cunt have been doing this for a long time. Like, I remember driving in around in my car in high school listening to WSTB from the Streetsboro high school and they’d play the AC cover of “Stayin’ Alive.” That was like a big thing man, high school kids being really subversive. It was a good thing. You heard that and you felt like you were in on something. Slipping it under the nose of The Man. And like, that band felt like… dangerous or something. Like there was a band called Anal Cunt! Man, you know, an AC record could get you grounded or maybe thrown out of the house if you had a dad and he was really strict. This was back when the Butthole Surfers were controversial. Even up through my college years it was like, knowing about AC represented some kinda secret handshake level of underground music knowledge and credibility.

22  years later, I got old and the internet happed. And other stuff… you know, now we have Shat. There’s pornogrind now. XXX Maniaks and whatever else. Grindcore has gone from this totally obscure and mind-blowing thing to a genre that is as codified and regimented as anything else. We’ve seen goatse, it’s even the punchline for heartwarming comics now.

We’re different people now. AC is just like… You know, it’s funny when I wrote this because as offensive as AC is supposed to be, I kept thinking “A negative review of this might offend the Wrong People.” So I apologize to the PR and the label. Unlike Flag, I have nothing personal against you at all. This is just like… I can’t find a reason to care in 2011. Anal Cunt are now “legendary” or something. Scott Hull is am important guy in the metal. But here is the thing, at least for me. I remember one time in 6th grade I got stuck next to this one kid in lunch. You just had to go in, get your tray and sit next to whoever was next in line. The whole time, 25 minutes, this kid kept repeating his big joke of the day: “I CUNT hear you, I’ve got an ear inFUCKtion.” He must have said it 50 times. 22 years of an ear inFUCKtion. Seth Putnam stands above you, he judges you to be fags.

This is the “cock rock” ablum. There is a grindcore album coming up after this. Fuckin’ A sounds exactly like Nashville Pussy. Check it out:

That’s Blaine Cartwright, man! Put a different cover on it and call it like, Pure Pussy: Outtakes and Rarities 89-96 and no one would know the difference.

Also, I guess this is the real cover?

This’ll be out on Jan. 11 on PATAC Records in the US and on Trendkill Entertainment (LOL) for Euros.

Hope we are still cool,

– Jayson
