A.C. is getting to be one of my favorite bands
. Although I'm not
what that says about me. I love how they got kicked off Earache
records after they released It Just Gets Worse
because of record
refusing to carry the album due to its highly offensive
read many a review of said album, and all have deemed it the most
offensive thing ever recorded
. I am proud to own a copy. The band has
said that their next album will only be worse than before. I think we
have a lot to look forward to.
I recently got the chance to see Anal Cunt play in Memphis
in the basement of a coffee shop/deli type place downtown. The place
brick walls and concrete floors and was illuminated only by two
hanging from the ceiling by the wires that powered them.
The show was the most intense thing i have ever heard. The band opened
with the warmest of greetings: "We're Anal Cunt, and you are all a
of FAGGOTS!!!". Immediately they went right into playing and didn't let
for nearly half an hour. What sounded like one huge jumble of noise to
some people was merely a medley of their best and most popular work.
like "311 Sucks
", "Rancid Sucks (And the Clash sucked too)
" (dedicated to 'The fat fucking kid in the Acid Bath
shirt'), along with their infamous cover songs, including but not
to: Elton John
's "I'm Still Standing", The Bee Gees
", and Hootie and the Blowfish
's "Only Wanna Be With You" made
evening as entertaining as ever. There were some reservations about the
skinheads beating the shit out of each other, but once everyone
they were just having a good drunken time, the crowd got back into
All in all, it wasn't the best show I've ever seen, but if given the
chance, I'd see them again. They are definitely a must for followers of
this genre. I mean how can you go wrong with a song like "If You Don't
Like The Village People
, You're Fucking Gay"?
As of Dec. 21, 2001, Anal Cunt have broken up. The
members have since formed several new bands, most notably You're
and Full Blown A.I.D.S.
. God, and I thought Anal Cunt
was a pretty
offensive band name......
Original writeup by our beloved taschenrechner who has decided to leave us. He bequeathed this writeup to me as a birthday present and also because I went to the glorious A.C. show with him. If you got a problem with it, I am sorry that you care that much. But feel free to msg me anyway!
