Mike Wild and the Magic Lanterns
I Was Punk B4 U Were Punk
Old man punk rocker from Philadelphia carves his legacy in polycarbonate at the turn of the century – after more than 25 years of being a punk performer. Punk it is, and gritty, too. Like the band that’s always playing/practicing/drinking/smoking and being as anti-social as possible. Contained herein are, in addition to the title track, “Die Die Die,” “I Was On Dope,” “I Hate New York” (a ballad, I suppose), “I Am the Crucifier,” “Satan Needs Head,” “Stuff My Bunny,” “Chicks with Dicks,” and “Rock and Roll Dreamer.” There are also a couple of “horror rock” cuts like “Vincent Price,” “I Created A Monster,” “Zombies From the Grave,” and “Wet Dream.” A feast for the ears.
