                     DON HOWLAND REVIEW OF

                "ALL CHOKED UP" EP

                      The day will probably come when I stop going through stacks of 7"ers

                      by American bands just to find the maybe 1.8% of it that's cool, and when that day comes I'll start missing out on stuff like this record,

                      which is by a band I've never heard of and which is, in fact, totally cool.  Whoever the fuck The Butchers are (the promo sheet says

                      something about this being a solo project by one of The Butchers, but the record doesn't), they put out one killer rec here. 

                      A gritty sound that recalls "Exile" - era Stones, the Neon Boys, X- X (esp. in the insane git solo on "Furor Poeticus"), and maybe

                      old Fire Engines on two of the songs; the third one sounds like Muria Muldauer guest-vocaling on a moody but uptempo (and gritty) rasta-type thing. 

                      I love it all.  I know the few dicks that read my stuff in here never bother to send away for the records I dig, but let me try one more time: 

                      write to Notown Records,  Hollywood.
