Live Skull - Snuffer



Punk in the late '80s had largely changed to thrash or more experimental noise like Sonic Youth. Live Skull were from NYC and were in this latter camp. This type of music was very important for its influence on the grunge bands that would bring punk back into popularity (if that was a good thing). This is from 1988 on Caroline and is more like a mini LP. I picked it up a few years back at a record swap for 25c. Very strange cover don't you agree? http://www.divshare.com/download/4560425-8e1 PW: rpm

This is a good record. I always liked them way more than Sonic Youth.

I saw the statue for years as the family drove to the beach every summer. It's moved to NJ, but here's a bit of rescent history for anyone who wonders.
