Low Meato

  • Low Meato (Ger. Pigs Ear) 1989 

If there’s a way to offend even the hardiest sexual sensibilities, this talented but tasteless New York trio knows it. Bassist Felix Sebacious and guitarist Thruster H.W. share the humorous vocals on such blatant indelicacies as “Ben Wa Balls,” “Penis Power” and “Easy Girl” (turning responsibly serious on “AIDS Hymn,” which consists of one repeated line — “Stop fucking around/Find the cure for AIDS”), while playing skintight power rock with punk, glam-pop, Cheap Trick and metal overtones. If their lyrics weren’t so conscientiously offensive, Low Meato would be totally cool.
