Beefeater-House Burning Down 12"

i started this on the 9th but had to go on a trip early, so here is the finished product.
well i'm going away today and thought i wouldn't get a chance to post this, but here i am. what better to post then a record i got exactly a year ago on my last trip. we were in halifax and i was looking for some record stores. well i found one and bought this because it was on the dischord label. i also bought the minor threat demo tape 7". i had to wait another 2 weeks to actually hear the record. so i got home and popped it on the turntable. i thought the worst but was surprised. i actually liked it, more on the metal side, but not metal vocals or drums. mainly just the metal tasting guitar. the bass is great and funky on this. funk is the best. some throw away tracks but still. so anyway this was released in 1986 and i believe their last of three efforts. now enjoy this or die (well not really). a lot of no rating songs, because they aren't really songs.
1. introlude (inrto by ian mackaye, not song, no rating.)
2. just things 5/5 (great song.)
3. bedlam rainforest 4/5 (nice.)
4. interlude (no point to this filler tracks.)
5. move me strong 5/5 (great.)
6. interlude (another one.)
7. one soul down 4/5 (good.)
8. ain't got no time (nothing.)
9. interlude (saxophone.)
10. sinking me 4/5 (cool.)
11. dover beach 0/5 (weak.)
12. insurrection chant 4/5 (nice.)
13. 40 sonnets on plants (what the hell?)
14. with you always 5/5 (fantastic.)
15. freditude 0/5 (weak again.)
16. live the life 1/5 (meh,)
overall: 5/10 meh recommended
some really great songs on this but also some really bad songs. a little hard to find. have at it.


  1. i love your beefeater post even with all the breaks. i probably like it more than you haha.

  2. haha. well the actual songs on this are good. to much filler though. nice if i want to sit there and listen to the record while i'm doing something else.

  3. Thanks for this Zach. For some reason I have never really given Beef Eater a good listen. I'll have to spend some time with this one.
