Lazy American Workersí lead vocalist and guitarist Todd Evans was in GWAR and thatís really all you need to know.
Ok, ok, so thereís more to this Toldeo in-your-face-speed-punk band than that, but seriously man, GWAR!!! Sorry, I did it again. Surf Lake Erieís twenty minutes of music plays out as if the band is telling you they donít care if you like this or not. Basically every song is a sub-two minute fury of rapid power chords punching you in the face while the trio laughs and hammers a few more beers. Lyrically theyíre on the same pace as Guttermouth and/or Beefcake, pleasuring themselves with humors pokes at everything. Itís rather displeasing to say that the standout track on a record is a cover song, but címon, the rendition of Iron Maidenís ďThe TrooperĒ slays, just listen to Evanís replicated licks!!
Lazy American Workers are a sloppy group of guys who will be just as content with their music if I press 1 or 10 on the rating scale and thatís just the attitude musicians need. Punk rock elitists back off, thereís nothing new here, but not anything too bad either, get drunk and fall off of a boat in the middle of lake Erie rockiní to this one.
