DAYGLO ABORTIONS picture
DAYGLO ABORTIONS is a Canadian hardcore punk band from Victoria, British Columbia formed in 1979. The band released their debut full-length studio album "Out of the Womb" in 1981, but it wasn´t until the release of their second full-length studio album "Feed Us A Fetus (1986)", that the band experienced more than local success. DAYGLO ABORTIONS is known for their provocative lyrics, aggressive attitude, and occasional crossover thrash metal leanings (which include blazing guitar solos).

The band was the center of an obscenity charge in 1988, after Nepean, Ontario police officer instigated a criminal investigation after his daughter brought home a copy of the band´s third full-length studio album "Here Today, Guano Tomorrow (1988)". The charges were cleared in 1990.

DAYGLO ABORTIONS Feed Us a Fetus

Album · 1986 · Hardcore Punk

UMUR
"Feed Us a Fetus" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Canadian hardcore punk act Dayglo Abortions. The album was released through Fringe Product in 1986. "Feed Us a Fetus" earned Dayglo Abortions quite a bit of underground success, and is still their best selling release. It´s actually a bit of an odd release, as it´s only the material on Side 1 of the original vinyl, that are new (recorded in 1985). The tracks on Side 2 are culled directly off the band´s debut full-length studio album "Out of the Womb (1981)". Side 2 features the trio lineup of Stupid (bass), Jesus Bonehead (drums), and Cretin (guitars, vocals), while Side 1 features a four-piece lineup consisting of Spud (bass, backing vocals), Jesus Bonehead (drums), The Cretin (vocals, guitar), and Wayne Gretzky (guitar).

While the material on the 2 sides of the album were recorded several years apart, it´s not necessarily something you will notice. The sound production is not exactly consistent within each recording session, and stylistically the band haven´t moved too far away from their starting point on the later recordings. But there are some differences, and I´d say that the new material is generally a bit better composed, feature an occasional crossover thrash metal influence, and feature more guitar solos. The basic music style is however still hardcore punk, featuring provocative/obscene/controversial lyrics, delivered with a "Fuck You" attitude.

The musicianship is generally on a decent level, and everything is delivered with conviction and passion. The energetic rhythms, the blistering solos, the aggressive riffs, and The Cretin´s snarling raw vocals. There are several highlights on the album, and I´d mention "Stupid Songs", "Argh Fuck Kill - Die Sinner Die", "Bedtime Story" (which is an absolute beauty), "Wake Up America", "Proud to Be a Canadian", "Scared of People - Black Sabbath", and "I Killed Mommy", as just a few of them. The combination of heavy riffs, fast paced aggressive hardcore, and more melodic tinged punk, is generally a winner, and if you can stomach the lyrical content and take it for what it is, this is one hell of a hardcore release. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

"Out of the Womb" is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian hardcore punk act Dayglo Abortions. The album was released through Sharpe Records in 1981. As a bit of an oddity the band´s name is misspelled Dayglow Abortions on the front cover. Dayglo Abortions were formed in Victoria, British Columbia in 1979 and on this album they are a trio consisting of Stupid (bass), Jesus Bonehead (drums), and Cretin (guitars, vocals). "Out of the Womb" initially didn´t earn Dayglo Abortions more than local success, but when the material from the album saw a re-release as Side 2 of the original vinyl version of the band´s second full-length studio album "Feed Us a Fetus (1986)" (with a few changes), the tracks got much more exposure.

The 14 tracks featured on the album are distributed over a playing time that only just exceeds 20 minutes, so it´s a short and to the point type of release. The tracks vary in style from relatively melodic punk to aggressive hardcore. The snarling "Fuck You" attitude is a common feature though. This is truly delivered with conviction and passion. "Out of the Womb" features several of what would become "classics" some years later in "Religious Bumfucks", "Black Sabbath", "I Killed Mommy", and "Scared of People", but all tracks on the album are memorable, instantly catchy, and entertaining.

Although the band would up the provocative nature of their lyrics on later releases, they deliver some pretty controversial lyrics here too. A song title like "Religious Bumfucks" of course says it, but the lyrics to "I Killed Mommy" are also quite disturbing.

Dayglo Abortions are a relatively talented bunch, and especially the vocals by Cretin are delivered with the right amount of attitude and vitriol. The rhythm section is energetic and well playing too, and Cretin also delivers some organic and aggressive guitar work. The sound production is raw, but not too lo-fi. All in all "Out of the Womb" is a great debut by Dayglo Abortions, but you can always argue that it doesn´t serve much of a purpose today, as the material is available on "Feed Us a Fetus (1986)", which is an album that is much easier to get a hold of. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
