"All Inputs" (The Living Room)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
The Assrockers' "All Inputs' (gotta love that moniker and title) is a rough and raw slab of rock'n'roll that blends stoner rock with Southern rock with a hint of old school metal. The result is a CD that's not bad, but that doesn't really reach out and grab you by the throat either.
"All Inputs" starts with a peppy threesome "Loosen Up," "Satan Built My Hotrod" and "Nymphomanic." None of these three tunes are startlingly original, but they get the rock'n'roll job done.
"Et Tu Brute" is a bizarre little song about Caesar, and sounds a little like something off of a Glenn Danzig album. "24 Hours" is a repeatetive anthem to an around-the-clock sex marathon while "Thor" doesn't live up to its name, being a plodding and ultimately dull tune that once again brings to mind Danzig.
All in all, not a bad disc but unfortunately not a great one either, "All Inputs" is certainly at its best when the band's feeling peppy - pretty much the first half of the disc.
Assrockers: Riff Rokkwell - lead guitar, backing vocals; Bison Roughbottom - lead vocals; Killer T. Toxx - guitar, backing vocals; Shang-Hi Skorz - drums; Misty Stainz - bass.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
