Lunachicks “P.S. Hell”

04/19/2011

Here’s another one that I’ll be talking about on the radio tomorrow afternoon

Listening to Madison’s community radio station WORT one night, I heard the single “Apathetic” from Binge & Purge, and the DJ announced it would be the featured “New Disc At Nine” the next two nights. I didn’t listen to the station or record the radio in general very much, but I liked the song a lot, so recorded the album in two parts the next two nights, and fell madly in love with this sloppy band with a snotty singer. Most of the record is about masturbation, menstruation, picking fights, zits and vomit, but they had a great song made up entirely of Black Sabbath titles and lyrics and this one, one of my favorite anti-school rants ever. My friend Mike was a WORT junkie and ended up buying the CD after hearing it on the radio, and he made me a tape with slightly better sound quality. I paid him back by buying their first album on CD before I even had a CD player so he could dub it.

    This clip is fantastic – love it! They’re one of my favourite bands and this is the incarnation I love best, with Becky Wreck on drums. I’d never seen such an early clip (Theo without those beautiful tattoos!) so thoroughly enjoyed this. Thanks for posting it.

      Glad you like it! I was really happy to find the clip too, and much as I love Jerk Of All Trades, Binge & Purge is the one I go back to.
