No. 4 Alice Donut - Get A Life/Get A Job

The second and final selection from Alice Donut is a 1990 single on Vital Music. This is the first taste of coloured vinyl in our alphabetical run and also the first that requires the 45 rpm adapter; there was always something vaguely exotic about these singles with the big hole in the middle, largely as is was usually U.S. import singles that required them. Get a Life is typical thrashy, trashy Donut fare, but the slower Get A Job is my favourite, with its slide guitar, trombone and bleak assessment of McJob culture.

So, will it be Alien Sex Fiend next? Only time will tell.
