Taste of Zimbabwe
We at slovenly feel it is our responsibility to force upon the public a perfect album of straight up punk rock every now and then. Enter Sardinia, Italy's Thee Oops! This debut LP "Taste of Zimbabwe" stabs your f***in' eyes out with an EVIL blast of violent '81 style hardcore: 18 disgusting screamers racing from 41 seconds to just under a minute and a half. There are new classics galore here with "Drive Carefully," and "Wooden Cunt," with "Death to Brunetta" & "Fake News" bringing the real repugnance. "On The Lift" is the only song that manages to barely deviate from the HC blitzkrieg, careening into late 70s UK/ Australia territory. Equal parts hateful Italian politico murder decrees and paeans to interweb beat-off pages & real human orgies make this an album to help recruit youth to smash shit up and get the nubiles naked! The Slovenly devout will recognize some of the fury here coming from freakbeat gods The Rippers, who loaned out Claudio (guitar) and Andrea (screams) to bring this putrid platter to next-level nastiness.
