German Post-Punk at its very height, from a band known to attack its audience physically if necessary – KFC‘s first LP is one cynical, masterful piÃ¨ce de rÃ©sistance, bound not to please everybody. A bit less punky than the debut 7″ (check it out here), but nonetheless a total smasher, with instant hits like “Wie lange noch” (“How much longer”), “U-Haft” (“Detention pending trial”), “Senorita”, or “Letzte Hoffnung” (“Last hope”). Some of the songs will require a second and third spin to be fully enjoyed, but fuck, who wants easy listening crap?! “Liebling” (“Darling”) sucks, but I think it was meant to suck. Still, it sucks.
From what I understand, this has been long out of print, including a UK CD reisusse. It goes without saying that this download does not keep you from buying the original or a possible re-reissue. The complete LP (incl. all of its wonderful crackling noises) can be downloaded here, it’s a .zip file.
Please note that for reasons yet unknown to me, the mp3 files have different bit-rates (this goes also for the past couple postings). Will take care of this problem until the next blog entry, promised.
