Reviews & Opinions

IRA ROBBINS, THE NEW MUSIC RECORD AND TAPE GUIDE, 1987: Acknowledged kings of the California ghoul-rock school, 45 Grave take a gloomy approach far less interesting than the flip swamp stylings of East Coast creatures like the Cramps. Playing with punky venom and a slick metallic sound, the fearsome fivesome is led by guitarist Paul Cutler, who has become quite an important figure working as a producer for various bands. band The songs on Sleep in Safety have titles like 'Evil' and 'Violent Love' and sound like junior Black Sabbath/Kiss with a female singer and no mindless devotion to guitar solos. Why this is appealing yo young people I do not know.

IRA ROBBINS/GREG FASOLINO, TROUSER PRESS: The consistently creepy Sleep in Safety contains most of the band's best songs: multi-textured creations like 'Insurance from God,' 'Dream Hits' and 'Phantoms' (an '82 single), the catchy 'Evil,' a delightfully unexpected Ventures-like instrumental ('Surf Bat'), the giddy '45 Grave' theme song and a fist-waving anthem ('Partytime,' redone the following year as the B-side to a snazzy version of Alice Cooper's 'School's Out').
