"You Better Not Stop That Car"

ZEKE kills it. Super Sound Racing is their first proper full-length (Pinstriping the Dutchman's Coffin was actually recorded before this, but was deemed unworthy of release until a few years later). It's an album made by and for dirty rock n' roll heathens who love fast cars, cheap beer, and loose ladies. In these early days (1995ish), they stuck close to a Blues-based sound with simple riffs, two-stroke drums, howled vocals, and bendy, blazing fast solos; all played with the tachometer needle pinned in the red. Later albums would see their style evolve into more of a Motörhead affair: playing even faster and with a greater Metal influence. Let me tell you though, there isn't a single album in their catalog that I don't like, including the Epitaph Records ones. I've seen them live just under a dozen times, and I always leave satisfied, having had my ass rocked-the-fuck-off. I'm pretty sure that of the original members who appear on this album, only Blind Marky Felchtone (Guitar, Vocals) and Donny Paycheck (Drums) remain in the current incarnation of the band. This is a vinyl rip, from the Scooch Pooch release.

Good looking out, bro. I should have specified that I was looking for a copy of the actual LP. I'll fix that in a minute. Thanks for the link, anyhow.
