It's Too Easy To Tear Everything Down

click for alternate cover

Another quality piece of rock featuring two of Danbury's finest, on blood-red vinyl even. China Pig, the kings of pre-post-rock (okay, I'll stop saying that now-- it doesn't make sense and it's not even true!), bring their usual crescendo excellence (they're doom metal), plus Fudd was an ex-hardcore which is the only type of person I like. It seems there's a different photo glued to the China Pig side of each sleeve (click on the one above if you want to see what the other copy I have looks like), which makes up for the artwork on the Monsterland side which is kind of dorky. I mean, I'm sure people would've still gotten it if they had just left their side of the sleeve blank, instead of writing "blank" there. Another ironic humor opportunity, wasted!

Other than that, the Monsterland song is great-- possibly the most frantic song they've ever put on a single-- but you probably could've guessed that already. I don't own any Monsterland singles that aren't really good, because I don't think they made any.

I liked the Monsterland track. China Pig not so much.

I don't know, people who're into stuff like Slint and Tortoise would probably like China Pig. I dig 'em, I like their way of rock.

Hey, thanks for pointing out the Rocket Jocks, by the way-- good stuff!
