Rollins Band returns with lackluste
By Josh Krauter *
Henry Rollins is an easy target.
The former Black Flag and current
Rollins Band vocalist is a big tattooed
guy with ajutting, dimpled chin. He has
been mining the same ‘1 love myself/I
hate myself” schtik for nearly 20 years,
with diminishing returns each time. And
his sensitive tough guy persona is as
predictable as an episode of “The
Rollins is a giant bull’s eye on a
small dart board, but give the man some
credit. Black Flag’s 198 f release,
“Damaged,” is one of the most frighten
ing and powerful punk albums of all
time, and the Rollins Band’s 1992
album, “The End of Silence,” got by
with ominously talented musicianship.
But that was fee Rollins Band of
old. The new band is made up of all
three members of Mother Superior, a
Los Angeles band nobody’s heard of.
And they’re not that bad. But they’re not
that great, either.
So goes “Get Some Go Again,” the
new Rollins Band album. It’s not that
bad, and it’s not that good. It’s a by-the
numbers hard rock album for head
bangers of non-discriminating taste and
Rollins is still singing (yelling?)
about having a low self esteem because
the world is too harsh, his girlfriend has
left him and he doesn’t fit in or over
coming his low self esteem even though
the world is too harsh, his girlfriend has
, left him and he doesn’t fit in.
The album follows the same hard
rock pattern for 45 minutes, with most
of the songs indistinct from one another,
including the Thin Lizzy cover, “Are
You Ready.” Rollins Band Version 2.0 is
a more generic, duller band than its pre
That’s why the last track,
“Illuminator,” is such a surprise. The
song is a 15-minute diatribe against the
current state of pop music that rides
along on funk bass and guitars, aided by
ex-MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer.
Itls also die funniest song of the year,
though most of the humor is uninten
tional. The song’s lyrics are as convolut
ed and ridiculous as the plot of Oliver
Stone’s “JFK.” And like “JFK,” its
ridiculousness makes it compelling.
Rollins talks over the funk, mostly
about how fake and disposable the cur
rent musical climate is, but the lyrical
ramblings make less sense than the
average demented lunatic’s.
After taking potshots at a whole
bunch of rock stars, Rollins begins talk
ing about an ex-glam rock star who now
works as a video store clerk. The ex
rock star rents Rollins a video starring
the rock star’s ex-girlfriend. According
to Rollins, the woman “moves too fast
for prime time.”
Huh? What does this have to do with
the rest of the song, or anything else?
Later, Rollins sings, “Keep it
real/Yeaahhhh/You always got to keep it
^■ Rollins Band
! g i TITLE: Get Some Go
f.i :i GRADE: C
• FIVE WORDS: Rollins
mmm goes nuts, mostly bores.
real/Aaaaahhhh/Ha ha ha/Keep it real,
man/Aaahhh ahhh/Ha ha/ Woooo!”
These are only a few of the many
sublimely ridiculous moments from this
big, fat ridiculous song. It’s the sound of
Rollins losing his marbles on record,
and it almost makes “Get Some Go
Again” worth buying. Almost.
