1,001 Albums: Albums 0017: Lard - The Last Temptation of Reid / Ramblin’ Jack Elliott - Jack Takes The Floor

Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys and Al Jourgensen from Ministry in a band together?! Yes please! I've loved both of those guys and those bands for many years, and this band Lard is the best of both worlds.  As far as I'm concerned, there isn't a weak track on this album. Particularly notable ones are Forkboy, Mate Spawn & Die and I Am Your Clock.  The latter of which has some hilarious and painfully true lyrics.

The other album for today is Ramblin' Jack Elliott's "Jack Takes The Floor."  If you're a fan of Bob Dylan, you'll probably dig this album.  I wouldn't be surprised if Bob Dylan was inspired by this guy.  Very old-timey folk music, which can be awesome if you're in the mood.

Anyway, here are the blogs I wrote about these albums:
