ABUSE - All I Wanna Do EP 2016

This little piece of Kansas Punk came original out in 1981 on Fresh Sounds in form as flexi and thirty-five years later the Italian label RaveUp Records made a re-press but add an unreleased track. The first 200 copies in pink, the rest in fuckin' black. A few words: Punk rock didn’t come to Topeka, Kansas until 1979, but when it did it hit like an atom bomb. Abuse (1979-1982) took their cue from the Stooges and the New York Dolls and then blended that into a sound all their own. Clay Galbraith’s sneering vocals and slinky bass lines, Willie McNeil’s pile-driver drums, and Chris Garner’s chainsaw guitar created a perfect storm of American rock and roll. Three of these tracks were originally released on Flexi-disc in Bill Rich’s legendary fanzine 'Talk Talk' in 1981, and a fourth unreleased track, 'All I Wanna Do', is included here for the first time ever. This is raw primal rock, the way it was meant to be played!!! - Well, all four songs kick ass and meet my taste.
