• ANTIPASTI - Last Call LP
Often cited as a classic, this is actually a standard punk album with incredibly rudimentary songs, simple production, lumpy playing and a preoccupation on war that borders on the obsessive. It includes a stab at 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' so wank it almost makes you wish Iggy had never been born. It's not without merit, though: 'Another Dead Soldier' is a modestly catchy diatribe making use of a riff swiped from 'Teenage Kicks', a new version of 'No Government' still sounds great - but, honestly, this is no big deal. Weirdly though, the more I play it, the more I find I like it, and its simplicity begins to beguile.
