Album Review

As with most underground hardcore/punk bands of the '80s, unless you were a die-hard fan of a specific band during their actual existence, chances are your demo or vinyl single managed to slip through the cracks. This is certainly true of Mass Appeal, a punk outfit hailing from Sydney, Australia, who issued various hard-to-find demos and various other oddities during their eight-year career (from 1986 through 1994). That's where the 24-track compilation, 2007's Nobody Likes a Thinker comes in handy, as it collects an early demo, a single, an EP, a compilation appearance, and even highlights from a performance in 1987. Pedal to the metal thrash punk is what the group — whose two constant members were singer Randy Reimann and guitarist Brett Curotta — specialized in, as evidenced by such rapid-fire ditties as "Rat in a Hole" (featured not once, not twice, but three times here), "Elitist S**t," and "New One." If you're a punk purist who likes it obscure, Nobody Likes a Thinker just made your life a whole lot easier.

The Unimaginable managed!

I'm not sure where to begin with this album as I became a fan long after it was first released. All I can say is it typified the subcultural zone from whence it came. An absolute Classic in hardcore terms. An unmistakable Tidal Wave-Mack truck in ya head guitar sound care of Mr. Currotta coupled with the "Spent-most-of-the-early-gigs-in-the-air" vocal barrage from Sir Randolf with far more intensity than your daily allowance permitted. Its good to hear the demo's and extras to give this release, clearly an Australian Underground historical document, its place. Well done 'the appeal'. Youse go off! (not forgetting..."play deadheads")

I’ve wanted a new copy of this album for years since my old taped copy carked it. I saw Massappeal backup the Rollins Band at the Piggery in Byron Bay when I was a teenager and our band covered the Deadheads song(and lifestyle) love this band love the album love iTunes…

Massive Appeal

Thanks to relapse for putting this out, brings back a lot of fond memories. sound is very raw and out of control! Would love to get my hands on a copy of 'the mechanic' as well.
