Legionaire's Disease Band - Rather See You Dead 7" (CheapRewards


BBBBBAAAAAAAHHHH. Total godhead Texas garbage punk.Unbeatable.

"LEGIONAIRE'S DISEASE BAND was formed in Houston by Jerry Anomie. A former convict, Jerry found inspiration after meeting Iggy Pop who helped him realize he could change his life by starting a band. Initially doing renditions of Dead Boys, Richard Hell, Sex Pistols and Stooges songs, Jerry wrote a full set of originals and the Disease took the city by storm.

The band went into Magic Rat Studios in 1979 with just $120 and recorded the “Rather See You Dead (Than With Wool On Your Head)” single which was released on their own Disease Unlimited Records in a small run. A second batch was done on Lunar Lab shortly after.

Jerry conceived a plan to promote the record by staging his own funeral. Finagling a casket from a local funeral home and making an announcement on KPFT, the ploy lured people into Warehouse Records and Tapes where Jerry was rolled out in the casket. Chris Lord of Plastic Idols read his Eulogy before Jerry was resurrected and the band played an in-store.

A bona-fide classic with its inclusion on Bloodstains Across Texas, “Rather See You Dead” has finally received a proper reissue. Includes digital download card. Bahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" - Cheap Rewards Records
