The only album of their three releases that I've ever cared for. It's a mock "greatest hits" type package. Something Spinal Tap could have conceived. Given the premise, of course each track is culled from the bands presumed 25 year back catalog. That said, we have a bit of everything here...punk, classic rock, hip-hop, metal, funk, etc.

Lead by former Necros frontman Barry Hennsler.
Pretty decent 90's alternative rock, heavily influenced by the whole grunge scene at the time, even though they were from Detroit, or at least formed there.

A fun listen, which until recently, is something I hadn't done in 10 years or so. I own the vinyl gatefold picture disc along wit the CD.

Recently I uploaded two video to YouTube in which I feature two of my favourite cuts from this LP. I've shared them here on the release page at Discogs.
