CREWD! (Buy CDs by this artist)
Gather 'Round EP (Bemisbrain) 1983

One side of this 12-inch is an ornate piece of Satanic scratch-art; the other contains five rabid punk numbers by a Long Beach, California five-piece with a growly, histrionic ready-for-Sabbath singer named Smitty. The playing is heavy and ominous; one listen more than suffices to convey both the point and all of its possible ramifications.

[Ira Robbins]
