Sore Throat - Unhindered By Talent

Released : 1988
Recorded at Lion, Leeds, 11th &12th Sept 1988.
Genre : Crust Punk, Hardcore Punk
Label : Meantime Records

While perhaps having the greatest album title ever, as well as some hilarious lyrics and insert, it wasn't clear if Sore Throat were making fun of Napalm Death or trying to become a legitimate crust/grindcore band of their own. 52 tracks that are either quick blasts that only last a few seconds, or sound entirely like Doom or Discharge. And just when you think the whole exercise is just stupid, they go and unleash a great song like "Horrendous Cut-Throat System" or "War Is Horrendous" or "Two Horrendous Nuclear Arsenals." See the parody factor there? It's as if they wanted to celebrate and take the piss out of Discharge, Doom, Napalm etc. Still the sound is heavy as fuck, and this record is actually a lot better than some other more "serious" UKHC albums released around the same time.
