Big Vinny and The CattleThieves - "I Was a Teenage Premature Ejaculator" EP
No, I didn''t make that title up and no, this isn''t pop punk. It''s your basic rude, gonowhere, mid-tempo punk that may or may not peak your snotty interest. The hard rock tinges to the title track don''t help, but all is nearly saved by the appearance of primitive drum machine/synth on "Black and Blue." They close with a GG ALLIN cover. I trust you get the point. A possible connection to the WONGS is hinted at in the sleeve notes and the blue ''n'' black splatter vinyl is sure easy on the eyes. Beyond that...eh. (MC)
Big Vinny & The CattleThieves - "I Was a Teenage Premature Ejaculator" EP
If GG Allin never wrote a romantic ballad to his dick (and I''m not sure if he didn''t) and how his too-tender mushroom cap failed him, Big Vinny''s written it for him, years after GG''s demise, and the world''s a better place. It''s the title track. Actually, the two originals on this 7" remind me of GG''s country work: laid-back in it''s own filth, heavy-drinking, self-depreciating, torn-throat and better than it should be. The third song''s a GG cover, "Sister Sodomy," so they weren''t working in a vacuum. Not essential, but oddly enjoyable. -Todd

Big Vinny and The CattleThieves "I Was Teenage Premature Ejaculator" 7 in.
Here''s a band that could easily contribute to the soundtrack that G.G. Allin, Stiv Bators and Johnny Thunders are probably making in Punk Rock Hell. Big Vinny & the Cattle Thieves sound like old-school gutterpunks, spewing about anal rape and violence from a graffiti-covered garage. "I Was a Teenage Premature Ejaculator" is about as close as the raucous trio gets to a ballad, as Big Vinny laments his loveless formative years: "I was a two-punk chump/ Like they would say/ I was premature/ I was teenaged." The B-side of the record contains two equally offensive tracks, which is impressive considering that one track is an original song. "Black and Blue," and the other is a cover of puke pariah G.G. Allin''s "Sister Sodomy." Something about the song "Black and Blue," with lyrics like "I wanna see you spittin'' teeth/ That''s the only way for me." tells us that this band''s not making music to get chicks. That is punk as fuck, and so is the vinyl, which is colored in a black-and-blue splatter pattern. -Niki D''Andrea

Big Vinny & The Cattle Thieves "I Was A Teenage Premature Ejaculator" EP
Well, the title cut of this fucker lives up to expectations. Funny idea, gruff and gravelly vox over simple hard rockin'' punk sounds. On the flip, "Black and Blue" is kinda synthy, with digital-sounding drums over some mid-tempo misogyny. They close with a faithful rendition of the Geege''s "Sister Sodomy". These guys are exactly what you''d expect from a band that has both Max Hardcore and The Wongs (among others) on their thanks list. Nice looking black and blue vinyl.(RK) (May Cause Dizziness Records // https://www.tradebit.com)
