    Named after the movie(shown above). They released only two albums, their first S/T in 1985 and The raw and the cooked, in 1989. They have released 4 compilation albums..

    Good band to do an entry on and I love the songs you have up. I've never explored them beyond those songs though! :grinthumb

    An old college roommate of mine refers to them as:

    "the guys who put out a remix album and a greatest hits album after only one record."

    Granted I'm pretty sure he's wrong but wouldn't know since I never got into these guys.

    Sounds like Slaughter's career. 2 studio albums in and they already had a greatest hits album and live album.
