Beat To The Meat: The Plasmatics

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 31 May 1980

"You loved the Huns. You raved over the Vandals. You marveled at the Goths. You will SHIT when you see the Plasmatics." — Alan Platt, Soho Weekly News

"I too found it very entertaining I must confess." — Tony Lioce, Boston Journal-Bulletin

"I don't much care for the Plasmatics, but manager Rod Swenson has got his fingers on the pulse even if his thumb is squarely up the ass of the kaptive Amerikan konsumer." — Roy Trakin, New York Rocker

"If this in Nihilism, waiter, bring me Nothing with Everything on it." — Alan Platt, Soho Weekly News
