Album Review

D Generation's eponymous debut album for EMI Records was sunk by a glossy, mainstream production that rendered them more hair-metal than modern-day punk. After the record stiffed and EMI dropped them, the group headed over to Columbia Recrods, where they recorded No Lunch with producer Ric Ocasek. Unlike its predecessor, No Lunch keeps it simple and dirty. D Generation recalls the sleazy hard-rock of proto-punkers like the New York Dolls more heavily than the speedy punk of the Ramones and, occasionally, they sound like the Clash at their most anthemic. In short, they're an angry hard-rock band that plays fast and loose, whether it's the furious "Scorch," the insistent "No Way Out" or the melodic glitz of "Not Dreaming." No Lunch has a few weak patches, particularly when the band tries to slow things down, but it is the album that justifies D Generation's long-simmering hype.

Customer Reviews

Get it!

I can't believe no one's reviewed this album yet. They were great, not just at distilling the old-school sound down to it's essence, but at writing music in general. They knew exactly what to play and when (it's like they thought "What would The Stooges or AC/DC do?" when writing), and made simple riffs rock. I don't know how much of this record Jesse Malin wrote, but he has some solo stuff out. I had this on tape when I was younger and I was just going to download it.

Am Album Needed in Any Collection

Well, this may not be a cup of tea for everyone; but, this album is simply superb. I am not a fan of all the tracks on this album; but for the most part, the rest hold it up. "She Stands There" is such a well-performed and composed piece... thus, being the reason why I bought it. Overall, great stuff and anyone who enjoys Alt or Glam Punk.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s

While groups such as the Strokes and the White Stripes get most of the credit for spearheading the garage rock revival movement of the early 21st century, there were several similarly styled bands of the mid- to late- '90s that preceded the aforementioned acts (with far less commercial success and press), such as D Generation. Formed during 1991 in New York City, the band automatically turned a blind eye towards the burgeoning Seattle movement, as their look and sound was straight out of NYC circa...
