Happy Flowers - I Crush Bozo

1988; 16 tracks

"Happy Flowers were formed in 1983 with two members of hardcore funband The Landlords. John Beers adopted the name Mr. Horribly Charred Infant and Charlie Kramer named himself Mr. Anus."

"Humourous and fun; unlistenable and terrible: Happy Flowers occupy a strange niche. Most tracks here are characterised by a single repetitive riff, or piercing feedback ‘experimentalism’ whilst drums pound and lyrics are spat or spoken. The lyrics are really where Happy Flowers shine though."

"All songs recorded LIVE in the studio, no mixing, no dubbing, no synths."

This is raw noise rock, as unbearable as it is entertaining.

The irony of the Flowers.
The irony of history.
The irony.
