Corporate Whores – Swine Courage (Complete Box Set)

Discography collection of this cult unknown noisy punk band! This is as raw, fast, and noisy as this shit got in the early 80s! Essential for true punx. Sounds WAY ahead of its time: think Wretched, Confuse, Siege, Neos, SOB, only at the earlier end of the decade. Other songs are retardedly slow and dirge-y but still punk (think KBD stuff like The Frantix) but most noteworthy here is the infamous “Revenge of the Whores” demo. Lightning-fast pounding drums, fast and unintelligibly noisy guitar/bass along withstandard shouted hardcore vox, with the sloppiest possible execution. All songs demo or live, so pretty lo-fi sound all around. Try: CD1: 18-27

1. Spoken live intro, live noise 2. Just the bass being stupid 3. Short, fast, loud (and noisy) 4. Ibid. 5. Slow and moshy, then fast. 6. Slow noisy instrumental 7. Short, fast, loud 8. Slow rock riff, then hyper-fast punk again 9. Ibid. 10. Fast 11. Fast, no vox 12. MOSH 13. MOSH then fast 14. Mid-tempo 15. Guitar being stupid 16. Caveman punk 17. Ibid. 18. Ibid. 19. Fast and LO-FI AS FUCK 20. Fast, chaotic, angry. 21. Fast, chaotic, angry. 22. Mosh, then fast. 23. Rerecording of track 9. 24. Blistering and relentless. 25. Mosh intro, then fast hc punk. Terrible recording, terrible guitar sound, poor attempt at trying to play a bluesy midtempo song—then fast punk again! 26. Silly and mock-melodic ballad turns into fast punk, unintelligible because of shitty recording. 27. Mid-tempo rager, the band is probably really wasted. (Note: Disc 2 is a completely unnecessary part of this collection, basically a compilation of random fucking-around in the studio. Useless, retarded joke guitar instrumentals and other such bullshit. As this review is long enough, I will skip the track-by-track review of the second disc and I refuse to give a fuck.)
