Safe and Christian America, and by extension traditional rock methods, are as repellant as the pod-in-the-crib scene from Invasion of the Body Snatchers -- or at least they are in Lithium X-Mas's world view. This is a compilation of material recorded from 1986 to 1991 when Mark Griffin (MC 900 Ft. Jesus) was in the band. Griffin is responsible for the guitar in a shag cocoon of fuzz and the heavy but primitive, psych rock production. His voice and future direction are unmistakable on "Ballad of the Hip Death Goddess." However this necrophilial track is darker than anything he later put out. Much of the record, though, may require some sedation for repeated listening. This is mostly due to the high-end echo and clumsy enunciation of main vocalist Ridlen.
