How to Clean Everything (20th Anniversary new edition) (Fat Wreck Chords)
release date: 8/20/2013
by Scott Hefflon
Deluxe reissue of Propagandhi's classic 1993 debut. Remastered from the original analog reels, featuring the full album, three outtakes, and the four-song HTCE demo. Newer fans might not even recognize the raw style here, but "Stick the Fucking Flag up Your Goddam Ass, You Sonofabitch" was one of the handfulla songs that put this band on the map due to their talent, courage to voice their well-researched political ideas whether they were popular or not (not for cheap shock value, but because most, even punks, didn't seem to have the balls), and soon-to-be instantly-recognizable sound. Frantic-drumming, quick-picked guitar with lots of palm-muting, and that clear snarl, spitting political venom so brutal, factual, and razor-sharp that it single-handedly set the bar higher than most political punks could match, then or now.
This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
