Screeching Weasel

Thank You Very Little

Panic Button

Middle fingers, some leather jackets, snotty-but-poppy songs and you have Screeching Weasel. This is along the same lines as the previous collection of “B-sides, outtakes, comp. tracks,” Kill The Musicians . According to Ben Weasel, there just were too many great versions of songs that weren’t available anymore. I can’t tell which ones were previously released, but I don’t think that Ben could tell all his songs apart, either. I didn’t really think that Kill The Musicians was necessary, but this double CD has a live set from 1993 (arguably SW’s heyday). Recording quality? From 1-10, about a 5. Includes a written history of the band (which is interesting, if you’re into that Behind The Music VH1 crap). If you’re a big Weasel fan, then you probably already have it, or now you’re going to.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
