15 Minutes of Fame 15 Years of Infamy (Steel Cage)
by Scott Hefflon

AntiSeen returns with two recs, including the rarities/b-side comp 15 Minutes... which sounds authentically shitty, as any collection dating back 5-15 years oughtta. And with 28 tracks (one being a hilariously awful cover of the Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer"), this sucker's a damn good way to get the goods offa various bedroom labels that've either gone out or are simply festering in their own hatred and not releasing records at the moment.

The Boys from Brutalsville is AntiSeen's first studio rec since '96, and it's probably the "easiest to swallow," though that phrase doesn't mean much when yer talking about AntiSeen. It's slower and clearer and actually has, like keyboards and piano jamming in some of the bluesy numbers, and for anyone familiar with these dirty, evil rockers, any kinda restraint seems outta character... But, like the Fear record that came out a while back, maybe the gruff-voiced growlers wanna try something a little different. Well, very little different... I love the bio's closing line: "GG is smiling up in Scum Fuck Heaven."
