G.B.H.


"Race Against Time - The Complete Clay Recordings" (Sanctuary; 2007)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Like Motorhead, G.B.H. mixed metal with punk to get their signature sound. Motorhead were heavier on the metal; G.B.H. is heavier on the punk but their individual sounds are amazing alike. Like Motorhead, G.B.H. are considered legends today and this packed, three disc box set contains ample evidence as to why that is.

With over seventy tracks, "Race Against Time" is an incredible collection of some of the band's best material, including the "City Baby" albums, the “Leather, Bristles, Studs & Acne” twelve-inch, assorted singles and a live album entitled "No Survivors."

Fans of speedy punk/metal will find hours of entertainment here and those wondering about the history of one of the underground's most unsung yet influential (and still active!) bands will find plenty of learning material in the over three hours of music here, as well as the liner notes by punk rock author Ian Glasper.

Rating Guide:

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.
