No Mercy Fool!/The Suicidal Family (Suicidal Records)

Mike Muir's Venice Beach bum crew repurposes its back catalog by re-recording swaths of 1987's Join the Army and Suicidal offshoot No Mercy's sole LP, Widespread Bloodshed Love Runs Red. "Suicidal Maniac" speed thrash ("I Feel Your Pain ... and I Survive"), plus pit anthem "Join the St. Army" and mad misanthrope "Born To Be Cyco" meet No Mercy's Slayer lite, Muir speed-reading through tempos ripping ("Come Alive") and breakneck ("We're F'N Evil"). Title track = hot foot. (Sunday, 7:50pm, Black stage)
