Salute This, Vol. 1

Salute This celebrates the reincarnation of the Slash Records imprint. Shuttered towards the end of the 20th century due to buy-outs and assorted corporate shenanigans, the label rises again as a partnership between its original owner and Will Fulton of Brooklyn hybridists Shiner Massive. To that end, Salute This kicks off with the stomping, incendiary thump rap of Shiner Massive's "The Sky Is Falling," and later drops "Here We Come," a product of the group's reggae-influenced spin-off, Shiner Massive Sound System. Everything else here is old, documenting not where Slash is going, but where it's been. There's the gutter punk of the Misfits' "All Hell Breaks Loose" and X's haughty, herky "Los Angeles"; in a clever bit of sequencing, the jagged jangle of Gun Club's "Sex Beat" is shown to have more in common with Violent Femmes' "Gone Daddy Gone" than you might think. L7's "Pretend We're Dead" remains one of the most underrated singles of the 1990s, and Slash's constant eclecticism is illustrated by Asian Dub Foundation ("Buzzin'") and Burning Spear ("Spear Burning"). Salute This is a nice pick-up for Slash's veteran supporters. It's also a hearty welcome back to the record-releasing fold.
