Plan9 Music

21 track double CD package from often overlooked 'crossover' act Uncle Slam, featuring two cult albums from the early to mid 90s. CD 1 features their second studio album from 1993 'Will Work For Food'. CD 2 features their third and final studio effort 'When God Dies', originally released in 1995. Formed in Los Angeles in 1987, Uncle Slam mixed punk attitude with metal riffs in a style known as 'crossover', popularised by bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity and D. R. I. , emerging from the ashes of a previous act known as The Brood. The original incarnation of the band featured former Suicidal Tendencies' drummer Amery Smith, and the band went on to include a revolving cast of former Suicidal members including Louiche Mayorga and R. J. Herrera on bass at different points. 'Will Work For Food' contains a radical reworking of Led Zeppelin's classic 'Dazed And Confused', while both albums feature artwork by the iconic Ed Repka, whose images graced many classic metal albums of the late '80s and early '90s. This release features exclusive liner notes from respected journalist Mark Freebase who conducted an in-depth look back at Uncle Slam's short lived but cult output, and includes an interview from Virus guitarist and Uncle Slam superfan Coke McFinlay.
