The Minutemen - "Cut"

Not much to say about this one, just a sick tune.

I got Buzz or Howl recently. There were some songs I knew right away ("Little Man", "Gringo") and a few I didn't. "Cut" I didn't recognise. It's on Ballot Result, which I thought I knew backwards, but there's always something new to discover on that one. On further review the version on there doesn't really jump out.

This version's a killer, though. After the first minute I thought it was an instrumental, but they tacked on some lyrics at the end. But they're pretty inconsequential; this one's all about the riffs. An object lesson in just how many the 'Men could pack into a single two-minute song.

Got it from the SST store (which, once again, is down, hence other links below) in the same haul as Paranoid Time.

Buy it... on vinyl.
