PILLSBURY HARDCORE- In a Straight Edge Limbo 7″EP (Fartblossom Enterprises, USA, 1985)

The first time that I heard (saw) PILLSYBURY HARDCORE was on Flipside Video Fanzine, Volume Six (or was it five?). I immediately fell in love with the band for the song “Hey Bob, what’s up?” alsone and forced about every band to play this with me. What was so exciting was the fact that songs like “Hey Bob” were not music, not noise, not serious, not comedy, just very playful and – plain and simple fun! There simply was no established canon yet, people didn’t feel they had to put every song, every band, every record into strict categories. A lot of naive – I say it again – fun was still involved and thus, a lot more subversion. And the vocals …. these squeaking noises, the bass lines and all that.

“My record collection is phucking rad
Got all the Dischord, almost
All the Touch & Go, almost all the Dangerhouse!!!
I got the Bags single, Yes L.A. too
My record collection my record collection
It’s rad! It’s rad! It’s rad! It’s rad!
Got all the Dischord!!!
“Legless Bull” too
SSD “Kids will have their say”
My record collection my record collection
It’s rad! It’s rad! It’s rad! It’s rad!”

What more can you say?

Oh yes, this band featured Eric Wood, who would later be in PHC and other bands. Right?
