Mentally Ill-Gacy's Place 7"

ok one last KBD record. this has to be one of the worst recording ever but that's a major part of why i love this record. it sounds like it was recorded in a dank pit, which sounds amazing. the guitar just sounds like a long hiss. i vocalist has a great voice. the drummer's very talented. i can't really hear the bass but i'm sure it's sick. you can tell these guys had a sense of humour, listen to the lyrics and just look at the cover too. the cover is a picture of the First Lady Rosalyn Carter and John Paul Gacy, the Illinois mass murder, shaking hands. the cover reads "To John Gacy, Best Wishes, Rosalyn Carter." hilarity, well you can be the judge of that. they have another 7" called Sex Cells, do you get it. i haven't downloaded that because people say the recording is so different you wouldn't even know it's the same band. on that note.
1. gacy's place 5/5 (fantastic.)
2. padded cell 4/5 (nice.)
3. tumor boy 5/5 (great everything.)
overall: 9.5/10 strongly recommended
rarely comes up, but when it does, it goes from anywhere between $50-150 depending on condition. their is a cd out there with this and some unreleased tracks. the unreleased tracks have the same sound quality and i wish they packed them on the 7" because they are just as good. thanks to peter you can hear this for free over at kbdrecords. the song gacy's place, which is the best one, is also on the 2nd KBD comp, so get it.
