Kungfu Rick
Motivation To Abuse LP (Up Jumps The Devil Records)

By: Jeb Branin

And I thought their last 7" was good... Well this LP puts it to shame. KUNGFU RICK takes its grind violence to new heights on this record. The band have catapulted themselves to the forefront of the extreme music scene with their showing here. Their previous stuff may have been raging but this is pure bedlam. Music with absolutely no restraint, "Motivation To Abuse" is about as subtle as a nuclear explosion. Primarily full throttled, there are occasions where the band slows down the mayhem to provide contrast and counterpoint in a most effective display of the mastery of extreme music. Screeched and growled vocals mix with a musical tirade that is both technically impressive and unforgivingly visceral and straightforward. Mark my words, this will be one of those records that you and your friends (both of them) argue over who was the first to discover it.
