. What a great name for a record. And as I remembered it,Peanuts
was also a pretty kick-ass album. Not quite as good asDeadly Kung Fu Action
-- the classic Warlock Pinchers album, which contained the immortal ditty "Morrisey Rides a Cockhorse
" -- but pretty kick-ass nonetheless. Prior to this morning, when Idownloaded
the entire platter off of eMusic, it had been more than a decade since I last heardPeanuts
, and at least as long since I'd even given it any thought. As I write this, though, the Pinchers are back on the playlist in heavy rotation. And you know what? Listening to King Scratchie and K.C. Kasum partying like it's 1991, I gotta tell ya:Peanuts
sounds every bit as good to me right now as it did back then.-- Dave Herrera
