    To me the last two Fear records are just weak pastiches of the first two. But if Lee can put out a solid album of all new stuff I'd be all over it,

    I really REALLY like Have Another Beer With FEAR, but really don't like American Beer. But Have Another Beer is awesome. My ex-wife HATED that album. Probably because I used to frequently say in the mornings after we got married, "Get up and make my fucking breakfast you lazy bitch!" Joking, of course.

    Dick Dale said that Spit Stix was the best drummer of all time. I'm inclined to agree with him.

    Spit Stix is pretty great - why was he doing sound, Evil Ian? That seems pretty random. Awesome, but random.

    He was subbing for a friend (and band-mate in a covers group that does the casino circuit) that had to preside over a funeral! The gig was at the Portland Nursery (as in trees and plants). One simply cannot make this shit up! Once his identity was revealed (dude has NOT aged, apart from some frost on the pumpkin), I praised his skills to the heavens and further embarrassed myself (not really) with a verbal interpretation of the opening to NEW YORK'S ALRIGHT.

    In the ultimate irony, I later played the annual Last Regiment Drum Corps party!

    Spit's drumming style was unique, and fit the bands sound perfectly. Awesome you got to meet him!

    Fear's musicianship was always head and shoulders above their other contemporaries in punk, the blues guitar work that's been prevalent in their sound since the beginning is testament to that. Hell, just listen to the bass work on Have Another Beer With FEAR, it's mind-blowing stuff. Especially on tracks like Ugly As You.

    So I gave the new Record record a listen on Spotify and other than thicker production this version has nothing on the original. Overall the album sounds more generically "punk" now and some songs like "Beef Bologna" are just plain wrecked. No thanks.

    Yeah, I listened to it this morning. I may get it just to satiate my collector's OCD mentality but in no way does this improve on the original recording at all.
