Meatmen - War Of The Superbikes (CD)
Release Date: 07/14/09
Reissue of the classic 1985 album with bonus tracks!
Originally issued in 1985, 'War Of The Superbikes' featured Lyle Preslar and Brian Baker from Minor Threat and Graham McCulloch from Negative Approach along with Tesco Vee. The LP heralded a new hard rockin' departure from the band's earlier rude and crude punk rock bangings. Receiving national press including a positive review in Spin magazine the album alienated some punk rock purists but delighted many new fans who reveled in this radical change of pace for the band, featuring the ultimate motorcycle anthem 'War Of The Superbikes,' a mythical punk rock game show in 'Punkerama' and the original appearance of the bands' version of the Nazareth classic 'Razamanaz' that continues to be a staple of the live set today. Re-issued in 1996 by Go Kart records the album featured a whopping 10 bonus tracks that included 'Morrisey Must Die' along with some memorable covers of Venom and Dictators tunes. Long out of print the band has re-issued this classic double album on their own label Meat King Records. 19 raging slabs of pure unadulterated musical beef! Bon Apetit!
