Album Review

The swan song of East Bay stalwarts the Rudiments was this full-length album originally released in 1996 on the Dill label (home, most famously, to fellow scenesters Skankin' Pickle) and reissued in 2003 on Skankin' Pickle alumnus Mike Park's Asian Man label. By this point in the Rudiments' career the band had shed most of its ska trappings, breaking out the offbeat skank only occasionally for texture and a jolt of rhythmic variety. On Bitch Bitch Bitch the name of the game is punk rock of the Clash/Rancid/Operation Ivy variety: fast, loud, grimly joyful, and apparently (but not actually) sloppy. Not everything on the album is an unqualified success — hopefully the drum solo ("Humping the Underdog") was intended as a joke, for example. But the proto-math rock of "Superhero Chickenshit" is a nice surprise, and there's more engaging rhythmic weirdness in "No Future" (no, not that "No Future"). "Terror in the Heartland" is creepily cool, and "The Shunned" is a dump truck full of good old-fashioned hardcore fun. This is recommended.

Customer Reviews

One of the best bands from the Bay Area 90

I saw these guys open for Skankin Pickle at the edge in 96' and I got their split cd with the Suicide Machines and it became a staple on my KSCU radio show. I was amazed to see multiple bands cover wailing paddle and give credit to Big D and the Kids Table. Its is crazy how quick something so good can be forgotten. After Skanking Pickle broke up Lynette and Lars joined these guys and formed 78 rpm's who are also awesome and you can get their original tape now on cd at Asian Man records. The longest way home is one of the best ska songs ever. And be on the look out for some of those old comps and splits out there with some of their early recordings. They also have one with Link 80 before Nick died. Another classic. Don't forget the struggle, Don't forget the streets...
