70's Rock Must Die (Alternative Tentacles)

By: Jeb Branin

Jello and the boys are back to take a potshot at their long time nemesis, 70's rock... the music that drove Jello to punk in the first place. This MCD is only 3 tracks long and one of them is a spoof tune but if you are a fan of Jello in general, or LARD in particular, then this is a must own. The title track is a seven minute nightmarish trip through Jello's impression of 70's rock (although I honestly think the sound they achieve is much more 80's). Anthem like riffs, whiny vocals and sardonic lyrics mercilessly mock the cookie cutter redundancy of heavy guitar rock. The other two songs are classic LARD although the casual listener may find a few too many similarities to the 70's song for the joke to be effective (distortion, stop and go riffs, whiny vocals, violent drums...)
