People may not be aware that the good people at Noise Records re-issued all their classic 80's albums at the tail end of last year. Was blasting these guys all week and forgot just how fun they were. Just beer drinking brainless thrash for summer days, great stuff.

Anyone know if they are still touring these days?...or have they ever been to Ireland even?

They played the Voodoo in Dublin in October 2006. Still gigging and have been confirmed for the Lords of the Land Festival next April in Glasgow.

Chemical Invasion and The Morning After have everything you need from them.

I used to love these when I was a kid. Ironically I haven't listened to them since I started drinking.

You're probably right, although I do have a soft spot for the debut as well. I reckon they would do decent enough in somewhere like the Voodoo if they did come back this way in the future.

Big fan and I enjoy all their stuff. They tend to split the funny beer songs and serious political songs on their albums quite a lot. If you are looking for a good thrash record with no beer songs go for Two Faced from 1994. It is my personal fav album by them and with the except of the Strassenjungs cover there are no drinking songs.
