"Astro Zombies / Colored Greens"
◉ ○ ○ ○ ○(1/5: terrible)
Punk 7" vinyl
Poe (1994)
I paid $1.35 for this record.
Astro Zombies are awful. They are a terrible horror movie inspired garage punk band. "Shake It" has a laughably pathetic chorus of some guy yelling "shake it" a lot over some weird choral thing. The overdriven vocals are simply grating. Then, all of the sudden, the bridge is this crusty blast punk yelling spasm. Really, ridiculously not good.

Colored Greens is a band name that is just painful to say for this sensitive white guy. Maybe there are some reasons behind the name other than the slightly racist overtones, but without any liner notes, I have no idea. The music is some weird flanged vocals over a surf beat. It sounds sort of like an attempt at the MST3K theme song that has gone horribly awry. Ugh.

Both songs are far too long and I definitely paid too much for this. As a tiny bit of redemption for my mistakes, I think this was part of a random package of records I got. The dumb part was that I kept it and probably will never get rid of it.

If you like this review, you can buy me a coffee.
