White Boy and The Average Rat Band- S/T (320 Rip)
Here's a heavy hitting proto-metal cult-classic from Baltimore, 1979. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. "It's heavy, I'm happy."
Says White Boy, himself:
"This ALBUM goes out to all the heavy metal rats everywhere with all hopes of an affirmative acceptance.
The Most Average Rat, Mike Matney"
From Acid Archives:
"(Baltimore, MD) This is stretching the limits of the Archives here -- it's an 80s album and sounds much closer to the kind of post-punk hard rock that got college airplay in the late 80s than it does like anything else reviewed on this website. That said, it's speedy not-quite-metal hard rock with a pulverizing distortion sound (to call it "fuzz guitar" is to understate it by a mile). One song is acoustic, but mostly this is just an in-your-face blitzkrieg, and it's really great."
*Question: In my high school days back in Gloucester VA, heshers/metalheads were called "grits". This is total grit music. Are we the only folks who said that? And if so, and if you're reading this and happen to be from Gloucester way back when, where the heck did the term "grit" come from?
