Reviews & Opinions

BEN WEASEL, REISSUE LINER NOTES: In 1993, when Lookout Records insisted we call ourselves Screeching Weasel if we wanted them to release our record, we caved in, even though the band had died in 1989; the band that recorded My Brain Hurts had little in common with the "original" Screeching Weasel except for a couple of the same members. That Screeching Weasel lasted for three years, and while there are tunes (on Boogada x 3) (and really, much of what we recorded in 1989) from that period that provide clues as to where we were headed, SW circa 1986-1989 was completely different from SW circa 1991-present. In fact, the bands were different enough that they literally only share a name due solely to circumstances that were as close to being out of our control as you can get without actually being there. Having said that I don't want to distance myself from the album, I'm just attempting to clarify things. Well, and maybe distance myself just a little bit. The album is amateurish, but not in a charming way. It's just annoying. The bands we were listening to at the time - Circle Jerks, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, Angry Samoans, A.O.D., M.D.C., Minor Threat and D.O.A. for instance - were not so much our influence as they were blueprints from which we learned how to be a punk band. Since only two of us had been in bands prior to Screeching Weasel (Vinnie - in a heavy metal basement band and Steve in some Wisconsin band whose name slips my mind at the moment), we did what bands were supposed to do - we wrote fuck you song, sorta-politcal songs, and filled in the blanks with a bunch of know-it-all social commentary. The end result was about what you would expect from a just-turned-19 year-old lyricist in 1987. It doesn't stand the test of time for shit.
