"Consisting of Jello Biafra, the members of Steel Pole Bathtub and King Snake Roost guitarist Charles Tolnay, this self-titled platter just might be the perfect way to tell your loved one this holiday season that you'd do it all over again. As lines like "Is that a cattle prod in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?" from "Meathook Up My Rectum" ride atop aching guitar manglings and loping, fuzz-drenched bass lines, the effect of this album on the listener is something close to standing nervously beside rusty, unoiled machinery that buckles, hisses, and squeals incessantly as it threatens to explode in your face over and over again but never quite does. Perhaps the most special moments on this one are "Hazing for Success," which rolls like a cold thunder before a storm, and "Calcutta A-Go-Go" which just plain burns, but this is certainly not an album to skip through. So put down that curly fry maker and try stuffin' a little Tumor Circus down that stocking instead."
