The gleefully raucous 1991 self-titled debut from this Miami band covered all the alternative and heavy metal bases, and while it didn’t score a commercial home run, it was still a prodigious clout (kick?) courtesy of guitarist/songwriter Jason Bieler! In between classic metal tunes like ‘Coming Home’ and ‘Ugly,’ Saigon Kick offers everything from grunge-y punk (“What Do You Do,” “Acid Rain”) to power ballads (“Love of God”) to even a couple of quite funny pop songs (the neurotic “My Life” and the homo-erotic “Down by the Ocean”). Since it arrived in the early-’90s ‘dead zone’ for vinyl, Saigon Kick came out on LP only in Europe, and original copies go for a pretty penny, er, euro’our first-time U.S. vinyl release comes in a white vinyl pressing limited to just 900 copies! Includes lyric sheet/inner sleeve.
