Buddyhead Suicide [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Buddyhead's been releasing records for a few years now, mostly from noisy wackos like Icarus Line and Shat. In between the rigorous 7" folding and stuffing sessions described in Buddyhead Suicide's entertaining liners, the Buddyhead dudes -- Travis Keller and Aaron North -- found time to post scads of pointed, mean-spirited, and totally hilarious gossip on their website. The load of rare material on this two-disc comp nicely encapsulates the outfit's first few years of music. But fans of Keller and North's acerbic humor will likely get a bigger kick out of the set's numerous "Torture Device" tracks. Essentially crank calls, the cuts find the Buddyheaders impersonating ...

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Buddyhead's been releasing records for a few years now, mostly from noisy wackos like Icarus Line and Shat. In between the rigorous 7" folding and stuffing sessions described in Buddyhead Suicide's entertaining liners, the Buddyhead dudes -- Travis Keller and Aaron North -- found time to post scads of pointed, mean-spirited, and totally hilarious gossip on their website. The load of rare material on this two-disc comp nicely encapsulates the outfit's first few years of music. But fans of Keller and North's acerbic humor will likely get a bigger kick out of the set's numerous "Torture Device" tracks. Essentially crank calls, the cuts find the Buddyheaders impersonating everyone from Matt Pinfield to the publicist for Ben & Jerry's as they antagonize -- read: f*ck with -- music industry types. Karen O gets the treatment, Hoobastank is violated, and the manager of an up-and-coming punk band is ensnared in an elaborate ruse concerning the Sex Pistols that's as painfully funny as anything on Curb Your Enthusiasm. The liners include a notice of legal action stemming from this particular gag. Buddyhead Suicide doesn't pull any punches musically, either. Disc one includes a single version of the classic Text avant-garde statement "Sound Is Compressed; Words Rebel and Hiss," a bizarre horror-hop remix of Murder City Devils' "Press Gang," and a surprisingly straight reading of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" from Dillinger Escape Plan. The second disc lurches out of the gate with Your Enemies Friends' gutsy and buzzing punk
ew wave revisionism, slices through Burning Brides' sludgy "Plank of Fire," and lands on its good ankle with another crazy inventive remix, this time of At the Drive-In's "Rascuache." Buddyhead demands diligence in both humor and rock, which makes Suicide difficult for the uninitiated. Conversely, the willing will find it a satisfying and side-splittingly funny experience.
