7000 Dying Rats - Forced Boat - 7

This record is totally fucked in almost every sense of the word. There’s an hilarious insert detailing the five-year journey it took to release this record, mainly due to gigantic stupidity on the pressing plant’s part. Not only that, but even the sleeves came out wrong! And not only that, but the motherfucker’s warped! Or rather the needle swerves from suide to side on the A-side of this (no doubt incorrectly) coloured vinyl 7″ but fuck it this is Chicago’s self-styled comedy grinders 7000 Dying Rats you’re not meant to be in for a smooth ride. In amongst the five tracks you get a drum-machine and synth europop version of Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ a totally blurred original that takes about 20 seconds.
