The Goal Posts of Life

As you can probably tell from the cover, in "Punk In Drublic" we see a Word Salad in its burgeoning and most immature form. In fact, it predates the band's first Prank Records 7" by about five years. Not yet the metallic leviathan that baffled us with its ability to be both manic and incredibly controlled, the band's unhinged disregard for predictability is still ever apparent on this debut. It warms my heart to know how our Word Salad turned out, and hearing them in their embryonic stage is tons of fun.

Magnanimous New Year's wishes to you too, man! I hear a bit of Antischism as well, with some early Logical Nonsense in there somewhere...
