The Germs: Germicide (Mohawk/Bomp)

Byron Coley, New York Rocker, September 1981

THIS ALBUM'S a real pisser. If you've got a nose for noise and don't buy this slab, you're up Hell Creek without an asbestos wiener. Playing that makes no sense & lyrics alternately dumber than a bag of hammers and smarter than your mom mesh in the most godawful mess committed to vinyl since Black Oak Arkansas' Raunch & Roll.

Total word count of piece: 361
