Uncle Slam - Will Work For Food - When God Dies - DOUBLE CD

  • Description

    Formed in Los Angeles in 1987, Uncle Slam mixed punk attitude with metal riffs in a style known as ‘crossover’, popularised by bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity and D.R.I., emerging from the ashes of a previous act known as The Brood.

    The original incarnation of the band featured former Suicidal Tendencies’ drummer Amery Smith, and the band went on to include a revolving cast of former Suicidal members including Louiche Mayorga and R.J. Herrera on bass at different points.

    ‘Will Work For Food’ contains a radical reworking of Led Zeppelin’s classic ‘Dazed And Confused’, while both albums feature artwork by the iconic Ed Repka, whose images graced many classic metal albums of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. This release features exclusive liner notes from respected journalist Mark Freebase who conducted an in-depth look back at Uncle Slam’s short lived but cult output, and includes an interview from Virus guitarist and Uncle Slam superfan Coke McFinlay.

    Decibel magazine acknowledged ‘Will Work For Food’ as a cult classic, claiming “‘Roadkill' hits as hard and direct as its name, while ‘Cold Fire’ slows things down (relatively speaking) to give you some time to catch your breath in the pit that ‘Left for Dead’ and ‘Dominant Submission’ whipped up. Weirdly, their iconoclastic take on Zeppelin’s ‘Dazed and Confused’ is one of the record’s highlights, these guys turning that song’s proto-punk into actual punk’.

    21 track double CD package from often overlooked ‘crossover’ act Uncle Slam, featuring two cult albums from the early to mid-90s.
    CD 1 features their second studio album from 1993 ‘Will Work For Food’.
    CD 2 features their third and final studio effort ‘When God Dies’, originally released in 1995.
