With this release Retarded have taken hard-edged 70’s
rock-n-roll, stripped away the excess glam and added some piss, venom and
punk rock to the mix. Retarded have really stepped it up a notch from the ramonescore cretin-hopping punk rock stylings
of their past, but they’ve managed to do so without losing any of the infectiousness their music has always been in ample supply of.
A few years ago Retarded had a 7” release titled I Don’t Wanna be Trained.
It was released with three different picture sleeves (each featuring a
different band member of the trio) and pressed on a few different colors of
vinyl. This release is somewhat of a sequel to that release, but now there
are four band members which means four different sleeves! The silly KISS
pictures are a nod to the nonsense that record labels and bands of the 70’s
arena rock variety (KISS Included) brought to the record buying public:
multiple picture sleeves, various vinyl colors, but only one recording!
Collectors will love it. Any label still releasing vinyl has got to love the
record collectors of the world - we certainly do.
