Rosemary's Babies - "Talking To The Dead" CD

Before he was drumming for Samhain and playing bass in Danzig, Eerie Von played with New Jersey punkers Rosemary's Babies. This 25-song, 38-minute set collects most (if not all) of the band's work, and it's really quite good. This is catchy hardcore punk, complete with rampant anti-social tendencies. 'Sex Maniac' and 'I Say Yes' get socio-political in fun, aggressive ways, and the furious blur of speedy riffs and machine-gun bursts from vocalist J.R. are as intense and snarling as anyone before or since. Kick-ass, raw, real, and original punk from the silver era (1982-83). Essential for fans and collectors. (Ghastly Records)
