Stick Men With Ray Guns: Some People Deserve To Suffer

This collection of assorted studio and live tracks from the 80's Texas punk group offers some of the slimiest hardcore songs I've ever come across.  Singer Bobby Soxx, (who died of alcohol poisoning in 2000 after spending time in prison and a mental hospital), howls and shrieks like a more evil/confident version of Bruce Loose.  "Christian Rat Attack" will instantly pull you in, you'll be hooked by "Scavanger of Death", and by the time you get to "I'll Kill Mother" you'll wonder why it took you so long to hear these guys.  Highly recommended if you're looking for more slow, sloppy, offensive hardcore in the style of Flipper, Brainbombs, or Drunks With Guns.

  1. Some People Deserve to Suffer is currently available for purchase online at iTunes and other retailers. A second live album is being released tomorrow: Rock Against Reagan - Live in Houston April 6, 1984. Buy them, don't steal them please. They are a bargain at $9.99 each (Suffer - 23 tracks, RAR - 16 tracks). Cheap.
