Sweatin' 3: Skatin', Satan & Katon (Slap A Ham)

By: Jeb Branin

Is this really the end of SPAZZ? "Sweatin' 3" is part three of a three part series from SPAZZ that collects rare, obscure and out-of-print tunes for the kidzz. It is also their first posthumous release. It containzz 67 songzz from splitzz with 25 TA LIFE (the most infamous SPAZZ release ever), MONSTER X, GOB, L.O.I., OPSTAND, BLACK ARMY JACKET, SLOBBER and HIRAX plus the complete "Tastin' Spoon" 5" and several compilation trackzz including the scarce classic "Gummo Love Theme." For fanzz of the band this is an essential collection and you don't need me telling you how great it is. If, however, you are one of those vile and paganistic not-yet-a-SPAZZ-fan kind of people let me encourage you to finally take the plunge. Of the three Sweatin' volumezz this is the one that most definezz the band. It capturezz SPAZZ at the top of their game. Many of the songzz on this disc are among the best SPAZZ ever created. Plus you get a taste of everything that made SPAZZ a hardcore icon: humor (check out the GOB split), raw intensity (the "Possessed To Skate" trackzz), insider banter (the L.O.I. split), unrivaled songwriting ("Gummo Love Theme") and a double barrel barrage of hardcore ferocity (the 25 TA LIFE split). You need this CD only slightly less than you need air to breathe.15
