- The International Vicious Society Vol. 5 by Various
The International Vicious Society record is a beguiling oddity. It's the brainchild of two crazy chaps, Laslo (who by all accounts is Dutch and a student of chemistry) and Gersido (who by all accounts is Italian and an artist). They met in 1961 and bonded over musical opinions and a penchant for amphetamines. They decide to form an association for lovers of music and lovers of cheap thrills. They planned riotous parties of unbridled hedonism in the refrigerator of an abandoned butcher. Fast forward to a year later and Laslo has been expelled from university for using the university's lab as an amphetamine factory. Laslo moves to the artisan city of Paris and proceeds to have a shot at becoming famous. He is joined a year later by Gersido and they decide to form The International Vicious Society and bring society to its little scabby knees. They didn't bring society to its knees...you need a bit more than a load of cheap speed and "mystical" cowls to render society finished. This compilation includes some of the records from all corners of this planet we call...eeermmm...Earth that one could hear at these ritual and wild parties. A society in which fun was always guaranteed. But always after the fun there's screaming...and biting and...kicking (sorry about that, I went all Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park there...). This record is quite funny and conjures up images of late '60s/early '70s swinging types getting down and, if I may add, dirty to swinging surf/garage style music...It reminds me of the time I went to a car swapping party...it was great. What happens is you all throw your wives into the middle of a room and then whoever you pick she escorts you to your car...I don't have a car so I had to come home on the bus. You will like this record if you A) like to party and B) love the idea of living in a world where the boundaries of society have been blurred...comes with a load of go-go dancing girls and copious amounts of "Devils Dandruff"...
