Notes: A powerful band out of New York led by the punk fueled croonings of former roadie, one Mr. H.D. Manitoba. They took booze, testosterone and attitude (all attributes necessary to survive in the NY scene) fed it to some raw talent and a legend was born. Ever sincere, H.D. is never shy about sharing his views and opinions. Tight rhythm section (featuring the misspelled "Adny" Shernoff) and ever steady leads hold down the fort so we can dance the night away. The cover photos take us back to a much more simple time. It's a time when a "gang" hung around the school yard drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and if they was to "rumble" a chain and a switchblade were the weapons of choice. Now it's crack out in back of the liquor store and an AK-47 if you happen to wear the wrong color or flip off the wrong guy. Who'da thought "juvenile delinquent" would end up being nostalgically cute.
As a bonus my copy of the record only has the song title printed on one label, the other side has the Asylum logo, but no track listing. I don't know if this is a common misprint or a rarity.
