some reviews MAXIMUM ROCK AND ROLL March 2009 issue of "Top Tens of 2008" Everything Must Go - "Sonic Pornography" LP/CD (Calender of Death) "Oakland's best band in years, Everything Must Go combines a healthy love for the Dead Boys and Turbonegro's Apocalypse Dudes with their own twisted, catchy take on life from around the bend. Yes, it's got the requisite number of Oakland punk veterans to boast the songwriting talent and punk rock riffs that other bands would kill for-think Christ on Parade's "Pressure to Succeed" crossed with Fang's "The Money Will Roll Right In." All of this makes Everything Must Go much more than just another band whose lead singer blows himself up every show with a jacket of fireworks in a series of pills-and-alcohol-fueled explosions! Yes, you read that right-he blows himself up onstage. There's no way this record couldn't be frickin' great." Jessie Lucious The SF WEEKLY Says… No Returns, No Exchanges A snarling wolfpack of inebriated rock 'n' roll animals, Everything Must Go kicked off its 2001 debut with a happy little ditty called "F.T.W." This year's offering, Sonic Pornography, is no better adjusted. Song titles help spell out the sociopathy at work: "Alcoholic Blitzkrieg," "I Hate Music," "Songs About Killing People," "Legalize Murder," etc. Musically the band straddles coasts, mixing shots of N.Y.C. snot-rawk with chasers of drug-doomed L.A. drool, all spiked with hammy guitar solos to give glam-punx their Johnny Thunders fix. It's top-notch/bottom-shelf entertainment for the sick and/or misanthropic, so haters, punks, and junkies should fuck the world along with Everything Must Go! -John Graham Buy Everything Must Go's album, "Sonic Pornography."
