LAZY AMERICAN WORKERS
"Surf Lake Erie" (Sin Klub)
Reviewed by Snidermann
The thing I love about punk rock is that it's musical expression in its truest form. There are no hidden messages or elusive plotlines; in a word, there's no bullshit. Good punk tells it like it is. If you have to look too closely to get the meaning, it's already passed you by.
Lazy American Workers is a band that knows that in a big way. "Surf Lake Erie" contains fourteen furious ditties, some of which are less than 50 seconds long, and one of which is a 3-minute cover of the Iron Maiden classic, "The Trooper."
Speaking of Iron Maiden, L.A.W. must really dig them because, not only do they do a better than average cover of "The Trooper," there's another song on the CD entitled, "Nobody Bags Bruce Dickinson!," Got to love that!
"Surf Lake Erie" gives the listener a lethal does of in-your-face punk right with no breathing space until the CD ends. This is one awesome trio and "Surf Lake Erie" is good for the soul.
Lazy American Workers: Steve Irby - drums; Tood Evans - guitar; Steve Wells - 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.
