Other than their name, Anal Cunt is absolutely worthless. A band that deals in useless shock tactics (racist, sexist, etc.), has survived by getting press for being totally outrageous... oh, and that name. The music is absolutely dreadful, bordering on un-listenable (even for a noise band), and it's clear that beyond their moniker, nobody cares. Ezra Caraeff.
I heard this band Anal Cunt was really offensive, so I went to the record store to check if I needed to refer them to Riot Cop's record-cracking division (see Riff City from a few week's back). The only AC album I found was 1998's Picnic of Love. I honestly don't understand how anyone could hold anything against this band and its great blend of acoustic pop with high-pitched, sensitive vocals. I only hope to one day find the sort of lasting love described beautifully in “My Woman, My Lover, My Friend.” This Seth Putnam guy must be quite the versatile musician to have played in Eyehategod and Pantera as well as crafted this soft music. I hope my sister marries a guy like him. JASON SIMMS.
