Locust

s/t CDEP

GSL's best-selling release to date is the debut "full-length" from San Diego's THE LOCUST. Clocking in at about 13 minutes, the record wastes no time in pummeling anyone within earshot. Combining a variety of sounds and aesthetics (CROSSED OUT, DEICIDE, DEVO and MOTLEY CRUE all come to mind), THE LOCUST have amassed a loyal following far and wide, and this record is a good indication as to why. Brutal, relentless blasts of 45-second mayhem whose titles take longer to read than the songs do to play: "Skin Graft at Seventy-Five Miles an Hour", "Fixed Companionship, Ghost Town Irrationality", "High-Maintenance Libido, Bring the Whole Family". These are cynical, scathing reactions to suburban myopia, tailormade for a generation of attention-deficit latchkey kids. "Camo"-colored vinyl on the 12", and the CD is a 3". NOT a mini-disc, but a standard CD with a couple inches trimmed off.
