review...

RANCID POULTRY - LUNGS FULL OF LEAD (PP 13) 2MC: 101m

Ah, I bet everyone likes to do a double-album, a great excuse for long self-indulgent work outs, a chance to bring numerous ideas to a head, and to do something a bit lavish. All in all, that's what Rancid Poultry have done here, even the packaginq is a labour of love.
Attempting to break away from the psychedelic tag I put on them (sorry guys!), the sound here is predominantly post new-wave, aggressive rock as instigated by D-A-F, Chrome, PiL, Die Haut et al, in the late Seventies - early Eighties, a music that also had its roots in the psychedelic era, but with a new raw, aggressive energy. Thus crossing the boundaries of rock, new-wave, industrial, dub and avant-garde, LUNGS FULL OF LEAD is an intense explorative trip of aggressive raw rock and weirdness.

Alan Freeman (Audion #16, page 13 - October 1990)
