BLITZ (Cleveland, OH)



BLITZ (Cleveland, OH)
"Oga Erutuf" 1975 (no label)



This hard rock band performed in makeup that was similar to, but more tribal than, Kiss, making them a real product of their time. There is one truly putrid song here, “Don’t Wanna Be Bussed,” which couples an annoying speak-sing vocal with a horrid attempt at social commentary. Bands this dumb shouldn’t make attempts to be meaningful; they dare to insult some girl’s intelligence in one lyric, while elsewhere they think that the song title “Holden Me Down” is spelled correctly. An obvious explanation for their lack of brainpower can be found in the massive amounts of references to a stoner lifestyle. That said, considering the gimmick and the low IQ, other than that one song, the music on this album is very good, a pleasant surprise. It’s melodic, hooky, even tasteful hard rock. A few songs verge on good power pop and none of them are bogged down by slow paces or tedious soloing. The dreamy, spacy “Mr. Natural” is fantastic. So, as long as you skip track two on side one and don’t pay too much attention to the words, this is recommended.

I think people should listen to the words (not to belive in what the say though). Much like a movie that shows people being shot and killed (people watch)..killing is always 100 times more offensive than what people say. Or a movie that deals with the stupity of racism ( i dont block out the dumb racist comments when the movie was made to show how dumb racist comments and actions are)..i just dont belive in racist comments). Album covers with spelling errors are even on people 10 times more intelligent (in fact it's done more on purpose not by mistake). Stoners, who needs them lol
