EVE - Speed, Glue & Shinki
This shares top billing with the Flower Travellin' Band's mighty Satori in the Julian H. Cope Japrocksampler Top 50 (drawn up to provide "an easier way into the trip" - cheers):
"Blues-based funereal dirges about scoring amphetamines, paranoid sludge trudge proto-metal anthems about taking drugs to avoid straight people, cuckolded dead marches to cheating women with invitations to them to commit suicide: welcome to the world of Speed, Glue & Shinki."
And while the gurning praise of our favourite laughing boy can sometimes career enthusiastically towards the over-fulsome, if you get the Stooges or early Sabbath, then you need to get this.
