Volcanic Rock

Back when I posted Buffalo's third album here, I referred to their sound as "proto-metal-throw-down dude rock" and "ham-fisted," "hairy-chested," and "macho." Volcanic Rock was Buffalo's second album, and my personal favorite from these guys. More jammy and drawn out than their rather mediocre debut, and not as straight forward as the follow up Only Want You For Your Body, but every bit as manly. Play this in a room full of skirts and see if you can't smell the panty pudding by the end. Seriously.

Aesop said...

Show went well. Near capacity crowd, great sets from all bands. Jameson's flowing in brown wretchy rivers.

Boy, that album cover is not phallic at all. Nope. Not one bit.

THIS RULES! Didn't the guitar player go on to be in another mega dude band called Rose Tattoo that is about ten times more homoerotic?

brandi said...

Yup. Panties = Hella Moist.

Devil Dick said...

I cant belive i missed the first 2 songs of the set

but i thoughoughly enjoyed flopping my hair around like i was some kinda cool

oh, and i have yet to download, unzip/ play this

but judging by all the 'manly' comments i might as well throw on my old Manowar albums

and when i see 'wretchy brown rivers'
i somehow don't think of whiskey
but thats just my sicko mind

paul said...

let's say i was one of the chosen people there aesop...how might i feel about the track Shylock? i understand it's a nod to shakespeare but there isn't much in the lyrics (beside the obvious) to let the lay person know it's not a comment on our penny pinching tendencies. thoughts?

Aesop said...

Paul, I hadn't really thought of it. But I doubt that antisemitism was part of Buffalo's trip, as I have never heard anything else questionable. It should be enough that they are clearly sexist and a bit homophobic.

Cannot stop playing this one. Thanks.
