Label: Patois / Cargo
Birthed of the same NYC scene that counted Unsane, Helmet, Surgery, Prong, and Copshootcop as members, this band flew under the radar, garnering none of the "success" their brethren did. In fact, as a young man attending a Helmet show in Athens, Georgia, it wasn't until Page Hamilton muttered from the stage, "Our friends Loudspeaker are playing the 40 Watt next week...go see them", that I had even heard of the band.
Now, I am telling you to go hear them...you won't regret it.
They take the riffing of Helmet, and drag it through the dirty gutters of Pussy Galore, resulting in a nicotine drenched bludgeon that still manages hooks, and big pay-offs.
I couldn't find a picture of the actual album cover, and I'm far too lazy to scan my copy, so here's an actual loudspeaker. Enjoy.
