EBENEZER & THE BLUDGEONS - PEER PRESSURE (REISSUE)
B1. WEEKEND NAZI
B2. OH! I LOVE THIS WEATHER
With tracks featured on three different KILLED BY DEATH comps, Baltimore, Maryland’s EBENEZER & THE BLUDGEONS’ first and only
EP “PEER PRESSURE” from 1978 is both a classic slab of early American New Wave and prohibitively rare and hard to appreciate until now. Side A starts with “FAKE”, a straight-head rock n’ roller played with Damned-like precision, followed by
“GERTIE”, a wild narration about an albino scene kid and her struggles told over a jangly guitar-led verse and group chant
Side B is where this record really gets going - “WEEKEND NAZI” aggressively mocks the Nazi chic fad brought over
to our shores from UK punk, while “OH! I LOVE THIS WEATHER” predicts with amazing clarity the coming of Fugazi and American
Hardcore with its dry, pummeling bass riff and staccato breakdowns.
