Iron Lung
Iron Lung Comedy Hour-Live [Book on tape version] (Enterruption Records)

By: Jeb Branin

This is one limited release that you are going to be willing to kill puppies to get. Enterruption Records gave birth to this live cassette from IRON LUNG recorded in October of 2001 at Burnt Ramen in Richmond, California. It is a highly limited, collectors release that comes in a "books on tape" folder and includes limited "Perspectives of Medicine Tech" artwork printed on vellum. Can it get any better than that? Only if you listen to the tape. For those uninitiated, IRON LUNG are a two-man band from Reno, NV that specialize in a brand of audio violence heretofore unknown in the extreme underground. Bearing marks of grind, power violence, thrash, and even oldschool HC, they are one of the handful of bands that have applied new and innovative approaches (arrangements, chords structures, thematic unities, etc) to their underground musical machinations. If you are one of the handful of people who remember the all-too-brief existence of KRILEZAC, then you know the foundation upon which this was built (IRON LUNG was born of the KRILEZAC ashes, although they have a more measured and sharp sound). For others, think of the later efforts of Reno's almighty GOB, whose founder Jon is ? of IRON LUNG. If you are wondering why the title "Comedy Hour Live," it has a specific meaning but you'll have to buy the tape to find out, because I'm not going to tell you. As stated, this is a very limited release so you want to have ordered it yesterday, go to www.enterruption.com right now to get your hand numbered copy. Mine is number one. I kid you not! I also got a one-of-a-kind cover and I didn't even have to kill anyone to get it (for once).
