HERE WE GO AGAIN…
December 21, 2007
Dug up two scans of some cool LAUGHING HYENAS stuff from my HD that I doubt anyone has really seen before. It’s nearly 15 years exactly since I got their ‘Life of Crime’ tape & god damn if that album didn’t kick my ass all over the place… tight, noisy, funky, catchy & those vocals!!! John Brannon sounded like he was being boiled alive whilst having his fingernails pulled out. The sleeves for Life of Crime & Crawl looked so fucking cool, simple yet very effective black marker illustrations.
This first scan is a killer interview that featured in the UK’s Skateboard magazine in August 1990:
The second is a press release for the Crawl EP which came out on Touch & Go in 1992:
