Black Flag - Six Pack ((Vinyl))
Black Flag: Dez Cadena (vocals); Greg Ginn (guitar); Chuck Dukowski (bass); Robo (drums).
Black Flag's early years were tumultuous: three years, three singles, three lead singers. The frontman this time is Dez Cadena, who later spent a brief period in Redd Kross. Harsher-sounding than his immediate predecessors, Chavo and Keith Morris, but more melodic than his declamatory replacement Henry Rollins, Cadena is something akin to a hardcore version of FUN HOUSE-era Iggy Pop. The title track is one of guitarist Greg Ginn's funniest odes to suburban teenage life, but the EP's other two songs, the slash-and-burn "I've Heard It Before" and "American Waste," point toward the more serious themes of the band's first full-length album, 1981's DAMAGED.
Those wishing more value for money will find all three of these songs, plus the band's first two EPs, a single, and two compilation tracks on THE FIRST FOUR YEARS.
