Cat Rapes Dog
My bandmates and I were talking about that Swedish Death Metal book last night, which doesn't have much to do with Cat Rapes Dog, but maybe I had Swedes on the brain this morning.
Cat Rapes Dog are my all-time favorite industrial (or "electro-punk" if you like that term) band and have been since my friend Lindsay dubbed me a few songs off this record back in '90 or '91.
Cat Rapes Dog was started in 1984 by Joel Rydström and Magnus Fransson, just one year after Skinny Puppy's debut ep and Alien Sex Fiend's first cassette, but they never got the attention those bands did. "God Guns & Gasoline" didn't come out 'til 1990, but it's still my favorite. "Maximum Overdrive" is another excellent record (especially the track "Schizophrenia").
Anyways, check this out unless you want to buy the CD on amazon for $255 new. (or used from private sellers at around $9). Crank up tracks like "Homo Bulldozer", or "American Dream" and blow something up.
Ass For a Brain
Oh why the hell not- here is the OOP "Maximum Overdrive" as well:
