The Angry Samoans: Back From Samoa (Bad Trip Records)

Mark Leviton, Music Connection, 3 February 1982

THIS VENOMOUS collection of thirteen originals plus a nutty cover of 'Time Has Come Today' displays all the fury and sick humor of the band's independent EP, and hilariously punctures the clichés of hardcore thrash through an amazing heap of invective. All but one of the tracks run less than two minutes, with many clocking in under 60 seconds.

Total word count of piece: 225
