Clit 45 – 2 4 6 8 – Review

June 1, 2006

Yeah, ok, so fake accents aside, there are a couple real barn-burners here, “It Ain’t Over” being my fave. Group shouts and swearing and shitty production.

Leatherface – Dog Disco – Review

October 4, 2004

Leatherface sound not a heartbreak less than their prime on Dog Disco: 14 newbies of swirling/gruff vocals and palm-muted/exquisitely picked guitars.

Sixer – Beautiful Trash – Review

January 3, 2003

Leatherface – The Last – Review

June 3, 2001

Leatherface’s most daring record (also their shortest, and their last before breaking up for six years) gets a deserved rebirth, and I’ve got it on repeat.

Leatherface – Horsebox – Review

September 1, 2000

Horsebox will probably be remembered as the band’s most mature and seasoned output. It has taken over Mush in the cockles of my heart. Quite an achievement.
