NEW AMERICAN TAPES INZANITY: HALF NELSON BASKET CASE DOGS INZANE FROM DECK WASH AAAAARRGHHH!!!!
AM-890 Half Nelson "Elegy For Weedwhacker & Peaceful Reeds" onesided LP / Man, one of my first jobs as a rat kid was "assistant manager" for LAWN CARE PLUS. My older crew tried they hand a running a Junior in High School Lawn Business, it was kool but gnarly. Raking, mowing over animals and insects, crazy old ladies and lonely rich housewife's, fights with other lawn crews: was a crazy job. We had a friend crew-er that ate a fish outta a small pond that we would illegally dump grass at went totally insane, still to the present last I heard....BUT: On the ruff days when my old skate partner-cum-young entrepreneur Erik had an axe to grind, it was young zone who got "the signal" to just weed whack, aka THE WORST part of the job. The other muggers would be living easy behind they self-propelled mowers, grinning wide. Being the weed whacked means you are doing the 1: lowest job 2: gotta sweep up 3: SUX. The motion Erik would give would be a strong glare, a point, then a weed whacking motion, all silent over the din of the summer bugs and rev'in motors. Ugh. BUT: Good news, that image is NEARLY erased from me rat nugget from this RAW platter au' excellence from young guns HALF NELSON, with they mind freezing basement MONSTERPIECE debut twelve incher for reeds & weed destroyer. A nasty adventure in true git and tape splatter all with the dribbling granite sound desire of damp dusty Joe Hammer Sq. Pitts Youth.

Me & Tovinator got a suet square in the big tree for all the birds hanging out, woke up one morn, made coffee and the visual for it was a massive SUET SQUIRREL showdown. Was intense.
