Jefferson Airplane: 30 Seconds Over Winterland (Grunt)

Lester Bangs, Phonograph Record, June 1973

WHAT A BUNCHA duds. What a deadass disco. What a waste of space, Mace, grease, you name it. Time was when the Jefferson Airplane were some hotshit, they made some truly skullscattin albums long aback when, but now they've devolved to the novocaine nadir. Sheer insulation without even the sickoid class and kinky delites of true leather and narcolepsy.

More like asbestos hankies.
