Mooseheart Faith - st LP

So, My first post of records I hate, and the winner is Mooseheart Faith's first LP.

I remember when I first saw this back in the late 80's and saw it had ex-members of the Angry Samoans, how can this be bad? I thought to my self.  I love the Angry Samoans, they are probably one of my favourite punk bands of all time. I was wrong, oh so very wrong.

This isn't just bad it's total crap in my opinion. Shitty hippy music with Jazz, Experimental music and bad Electronica over tones, that just bores the living fuck out of me when it isn't pissing me off. Seriously it reminds me of stoned out hippies from the 1970's.

There are two covers of Angry Samoan songs "Unhinged," and "Back to Samoa," They are listed as being the original versions. Man am I happy that they never appeared on any Angry Samoan records because they aren't even remotely good.

At times you can kind of hear late period Angry Samoans in this but it is few and far between.

As for having Ex-Angry Samoan members? Out of the three people on this record two of them where in the Angry Samoans Todd Homer and PJ Galligan. I guess two out of three is not bad, but I kind of think this is false advertising, because if you think you are going to hear anything remotely like the Angry Samoans, you are in for the biggest let down of your life.

In all honesty I had not listened to it since I first played in when I bought it. I just ripped it to MP3's to see if it was as bad as I remembered it. Yes, it was as bad if not worse.

Released in 1988 on DeMilo Records of New York, NY

Now for something completely Different

The next month or so I will be doing reviews of records that I really hate, was disappointed with or had other issues with. There will be no links to download these post (I'm still shopping around and even if I wasn't I don't think I'd post links for this lot),

Yeah, I'm not in a great mood. Lots of personal stuff going on that I don't want to get into, so I guess trashing stuff is going to be my therapy. I feel like Luis Suarez getting ready to bite someone.

On a positive note the World Cup wasn't a total loss. Yeah, the teams I was rooting for: England, Brasil and Team USA, didn't do that great, it was still a good World Cup.

Basically if you don't enjoy records getting trashed check in, in about a month or so.
