While the rest of the music world seems to have given up on trying to make any thing that resembles kick ass rock and roll, Mr. Dude comes through with a new record that is reckless, hilarious, nervy and joyful at the same time. Authentically relevant for the times with out being up its own ass at all. Fuck the new Idles record, buy this shit...twice.
Favorite track: USA Get Off My Dick.
Aggressive synth-damaged post-punk from the idiots who brought you Police Teeth and IfIHadAHiFi.
Killed By Life is a departure. It is NOT a party tape. The party's fucking over, bro.
released September 25, 2020

This record is dedicated to all of our dead homies.
Here is the lyric sheet:
"as pure as the driven snow, once the sled dogs are through with it."
"all sticky like tar, a vulgar shade of gray."
"who the fuck would want to live in a world like this?"
"if the city is dying, it's cuz you pulled the plug."
"I will lend you a trustworthy knife."
"knotting myself around your approved imagery."
"what a crummy disguise!"
"clean it up."

the rutabega is giving this album away for free?? Very generous, but after listening to this LP over and over again, it's only right to throw them a few bucks. I love all the tracks, but "turn on the summer" is just a special song. Get into them. Ian Lovdahl
