Love Canal - It's A Dogs Life So Blow It Out Yer Ass LP


Requested by many so here it finally is.
Had to lend a copy of a friend as my copy has one side slightly off-centre causing some warped sound.
Named after a Niagara Falls, NY neighborhood built on a massive toxic waste dump, Love Canal from Huntington Beach, CA, formed in 1982 after The Skoundrelz broke up.
They also appeared on the "Half Skull" comp. 7" on Insane Industries as well as on the Mystic comp. "Clockwork Orange County" and "Covers". Well they play a Hendrix tune here.
The album was recorded in 1985 except for the last 4 tracks which were recorded in 1983 and suffer from lesser quality unfortunately.
"Funk You", "Friends" and "Lurking In The Dark" were originally written by pre-Love Canal band The Skoundrelz. I think The Skoundrelz appeared on one of the BCT comp. tapes.

Singer Kerry was in Motherfist after Love Canal split up.

Read somewhere that Grand Theft Audio planned to release a discography CD but I've never seen one.

There's a MySpace page for the band . Seems they reformed in 2007 and play live again.

The LP was released in 1985 on National Trust Records.

Thankyou! Thankyou!! Really under-rated band. As for the GTA CD project, I wrote to Kerry (singer) a while back, and he responded: "yeah, whatever happened to Grand Theft Audio?" Hopefully it will eventually come out - GTA are still in business. If not there, maybe somewhere else. Anyone ever hear this other band Kerry was in?? Thanks again - this blog is killer!! (P.S. another request - hope you won't mind - "Big Fish Stories" by The Crowd. WAY out of print...) Cheers!

GTA is still around but he has a huge backlog of projects and bands have been slow in getting him material to complete the projects.

Yes it's quiet on the GTA front already for a while.
Will see if my friend has the album of The Crowd.

Looking at the records artwork, i'd like to stick a firecracker up that kid's ass and see how he likes it!

I'm very opposed to animal abuse myself. But this is just a drawing and it doesn't offend me at all.
