Christ-o-nators


Another classic here, at least as far as my personal cannon is concerned. I love both bands, and it really isn't fair to either of them to attempt a description or an explanation of their importance and/or awesomeness. EC drop a couple of mid-period gems: "Petty Ways" and "Uncontrolable Urge" (a Devo cover. I can't say it's better than the original, but it's Econochrist covering Devo for Christsake!). I recognize The Detonator's "Day By Day" from the "Balls To You" LP (rough cut), but I'm not sure if the other two tracks ("Crime And Punishment" and "Angry Young Man") were released elsewhere. The Econochrist discography is probably available everywhere from Ebullition to Amazon, and The Detonators' "Balls To You"CD has been reissued and is also easy to find.

320 rips from the 3rd pressing, scans, yada yada...
