I vividly remember hitting lame parties like the one described. Oh, how I miss the ‘80s!

I’ll admit I first thought of this ‘self-isolation’ mandate like a party. I could stay at home and do what I wanted but now that this directive has bled into several weeks I can honestly say, “This Party Sucks!”

Ludichrist began in 1984. A prominent member of New York’s ‘crossover movement’, the band fused thrash metal, hardcore and jazz into something completely different.

Ludichrist released two highly regarded albums: Immaculate Deception (1986) and Powertrip (1988).

Before the unveiling of their third album 1990’s: Here Comes Trouble released on Combat Core / Relativity Records, Ludichrist changed their name to Scatterbrain. This was done to circumvent a boycott by conservative record distributors who did not appreciate the band’s stab at religion. Scatterbrain went on to release, Scamboogery (1991) and an EP Mundus Intellectualis (1994) before calling it quits.

“This Party Sucks” is vision of Ludichrist in their heyday. A performance offering that highlights the power of a live setting when metal ruled the world. The crowd shots are amazing as the lyrics: ’bout thirty people were there and most of them were dicks. Only three of them were girls, but they weighed as much as six’. I vividly remember hitting lame parties like the one described. Oh, how I miss the ‘80s!

As you long as you keep in mind most people are dicks, you’ll get through this quarantine. Check out this music video by Ludichrist and enjoy the glory days when we could all go out and party together! \m/
