If you know your Florida punk rock, you'll know the mighty Roach Motel, the Sunshine State's highly un-PC answer to Minor Threat. This CD compiles pretty much every RM song recorded (plus a Grand Funk Railroad cover), with the notable exclusion of the band's classic "Wetback." Oh well, you can't win 'em all. These are 20 raging hardcore numbers totaling 33 minutes of ear-splitting anger the way the good Lord meant it to sound. Led by psycho Steve Albini-lookalike Bob Fetz, the band is helmed at the guitars by local resident Drug Czars member Jeff Hodapp and NYC über-punk-rock writer George Tabb of Maximum Rock n Roll and Furious George fame. Thrash about to Floridian gems such as "I Hate the Sunshine State," "Florida Reptile Land," "Brooke Shields Must Die," "Mom Likes Drugs," "Death Squad," and "I Wanna Keep My Gun." This album is crucial to your collection. Leather jacket time!
