Haystack - Slave Me ( 1998 )

A quick Sunday night post. Been listening to this album all weekend during many long hours of driving. Back in the late 90's Entombed guitarist Uffe Cederlund loved noisy, American rock. So much so that he started a band to play this sort of music that he couldn't write into his day job. he recruited a Backyard Baby and some dude from A-Bombs and Haystack was born. I don't really like the first album Right At You (1996) but this one really does it for me. The obvious love for skronky, Am-Rep worship is so blatantly clear that its not worth trying to defend it. They guy loves The Jesus Lizard, Melvins, The Cows and Unsane. Especially Unsane. There are times when you could be listening to a lost Unsane album during Slave Me's rotation on the player. Not original in the slightest but as I have seen it described " I would rather listen to a good copy album than a bad, original album". I wholly agree with that statement.
