Killer Fox -- Orgasm of Death
Extremely odd release from the Metal Enterprises record label, whose demented non-genius I first read about over at The Corroseum. Apparently this incarnation of Killer Fox is not a true incarnation at all, as half the band died in a car crash in 1987, while this came out in 1990 with none of the original members involved. Ingo Nowotny, head of Metal Enterprises, was known for rushing out product with little regard for quality or, in this case, copyright. (Look who's talking, eh?) In any case, I expected to snigger while listening to some utter sonic crapulence, but to my great surprise, I kinda like it. In fact many of these tunes would fit right in on the Old Lady Drivers debut on Earache. I should add that there is no moment during which any of this makes sense -- mostly you'll find yourself saying what the fuck? -- but it's bound to at least bring a smile to your face. And if I can bring a smile to the face of just one of you, it will all have been...oh, and the cover. The cover! How does this kind of thing happen? Anyway, enjoy.
