When I received my Enough records, I found that Fat Sandwich had thrown in a free record from Cannomen. Nope...never heard of them, and I didn't care. The record didn't fit the look of what I would be interested in, so I promptly tossed it aside and ignored it.
A couple months later, I was getting ready to write up the blog post for Enough, and I decided to throw on the Cannomen record...fully prepared to toss it out, but willing to give it one listen to confirm that I didn't like it as much as I expected. The needle catches that groove and a manic bass line starts thumping out of the speakers, and then things erupt into punk rock chaos. Holy shit. At times I'm reminded of The Yah Mos, and sometimes I hear Agent Orange. By the time we hit the dead wax of the B side, I've decided that this thing fucking rules, and I need to head back to Fat Sandwich to pick up the second 7 inch from Cannomen.
The second 7 inch from Cannomen, follows the same formula as the first, but there is something about this one that makes me appreciate it more. I can't quite put my finger on what it is though.
