Lollipop - Ass To Earlobe

something to get you all jacked up on a Friday night.

I saw these guys open for Mule in Buffalo about 10 years ago. The hometown crowd ate them up and I left a convert. Needless to say, I was surprised when the turned up on Amphetamine Reptile, one of my favorite labels. To me Lollipop sounded like a crazed fusion of the Didjits speedfreak punk and Halo of Flies brand of dirty noise. "Ass to Earlobe" is from 1997's Sucked In, Blown Out, one of nine cuts of freaked out noise punk. The vocals may take some getting used to, but they are buried beneath so much squelchy feedback that they're hardly noticed. In my mind, this was one of the last great albums on AmRep.
