How do I put this delicately and politically correct? O.L.D‘s self title album sounds like the

Artist: O.L.D.

soundtrack to an amputee, cracked-out, midget, down-syndrome, orgy. This is by far the most bizarre and tolerable as grindcore can get for me before I say go fuck yourself with your track titles that are longer than your tracks, but……. this album is actually good? I say that as a question because I do not know why I can (and do at full volume with no shame) listen to this shit. Then you realize they are from New Jersey and it all makes sense.  (Go Devils!)

Old Lady Drivers or O.L.D. is some fucked up grind, before it was cool to not give a fuck about being a grind band. I bet the whole time O.L.D. was recording this album Earache Records was sitting there going WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING YOU ASSHOLES?!?! If you want to blame any one band for bastardizing the genre of grind its actually not Anal Cunt, O.L.D. debuted 5 years before Seth Putnam’s Anal Cunt‘s Morbid Florist(say that 50 times fast and change your name to Agoraphobic Nosebleed and you just made your first annoying grindcore song)

Probably not but I’m going to say it anyway, you know that part on Eminem‘s Marshal Mathers LP where he is talking to Steve Berman and he says

Do you know why Dre‘s record was so successful?
He’s rappin’ about big-screen T-V’s, blunts, 40’s and bitches
You’re rappin’ about homosexuals and Vicadin

That’s kind of how I imagine O.L.D. talking to Earache went.

Do you know why Carcass is so successful?
They are talking about exhuming bodies and eating them
You guys are making grind about old ladies and little girls walking through the grocery store.

But goddamn if their cover of Eric Clapton‘s “Cocaine” isn’t fucking sweet. If you don’t know who Eric Clapton is, his kid commited suicide because he sucks(Anal Cunt‘s words not mine). GRIND BANDS LOVE ERIC CLAPTON!

Seriously though listen to this album it’s good in its own fucked up way.

And how Jason Everman was recruited for their follow up album Lo Flux Tube is beyond me.
