Afflicted Man // Get Stoned Ezy


MP3: Afflicted Man – Get Stoned Ezy

“Afflicted Man (or Afflicted) was the charming moniker of a Londoner by the name’ve Steve Hall. Up to this outing, Afflicted Man’s style could best described at stock-in-trade Brit DIY w/an almost Street Level sort’ve quality to it. Then at some point Hall lost the Afflicted tag & went on to the Accursed, which was a decidedly Nation Front styled punk trio who knocked out (at least) 2 lp’s. And somewhere between that transformation came this amazing anomaly. Too freaked out for punks, too punked out for freaks, ‘Get Stoned Ezy’ is a bloodbath of pedal stomping carnage. Recorded & (originally) released in 1982, it must’ve felt like a rusty safety pin stuck straight through the heart of whatever DIY fanbase Hall had acquired. And for all the Pink Fairies or Hawkwind type’s that mighta come across it, it was too primitive & animalistic for their quid. And forget about the psych & prog clowns. To them this must’ve seemed like a soundtrack to the Manson Family. In a country where the pigeonhole is everything, this record wouldn’t play by the rules, was deemed “esoteric” & banished into the fog.” [via – slitblog]
