I promised last week, so I’m happily following through this week:
AGONY COLUMN WAS THE BEST. A hellbilly death-metal onslaught straight outta Texas, they never got their due, but they put out two flawless albums – God, Guns & Guts in 1990 and Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles in 1991. (Their 1994 release Way Back In The Woods is seriously hard to track down, but I hear it’s pretty good.)
Fiendish plots, diabolical minds, 4x4s, and a hole to Hell. Devil Chicken, Bat Lord, Red Wing Viper, shit yeah!
Agony Column had a varied sound, more varied than the songs I’m posting today, but these two are my faves and I had a hard time whittling it down to two.
So, listen, dig, dig em up!
Agony Column – Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles from Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles
Agony Column – Snakebite from God, Guns & Guts
…and here’s Ultraviolent Rays (shit, yeah!)
