AllMusic Review by Skip Jansen
The fourth album by this ex-Australian noise rock group is the first incarnation of the New York version of the Stu Spasm-led project. Vinnie Signorelli, who'd done time in Foetus and the Swans, was on drums and Tod Ashley from Cop Shoot Cop was on guitar, while Tony Lee of Railroad Jerk provided the bass and Jim Collaruso of Motherhead Bug completed what by this stage could be considered something of a noise rock supergroup. The switch from Amphetamine Reptile to PCP also saw a revamping of the classic Lubricated Goat sound; the abrasive Big Black/Birthday Party sound gave way to a lurid mix akin to Tom Waits or Nick Cave fronting Pere Ubu. This short-lived incarnation marks the end of Lubricated Goat, with Spasm going to the West Coast and joining Bloodloss along with Mark Arm of Mudhoney fame. A revived trio cut Shut Your Mind/In the Wrong Hands for Sympathy in 1992 and Play Dead/Prayer for the Blood on Sub Pop a year later. Spasm formed Crunt with wife Kat Bjelland of Babes in Toyland, yet never quite topped Lubricated Goat's finest hour,
