    One of the most idiosyncratic of the American 80s noise rock bands, Scratch Acid feels like The Birthday Party put in a blender with meth. How this hasn’t had a supreme deluxe vinyl edition as a box set 4 LP with some live recording attached is BEYOND me.

          I count this compilation of the Texas post-punk masters' output in my top 5 releases on Touch And Go.
