Complete your An Albatross collection. A stunning 8 minutes of noise. Heard the first track alone, and had to hear how an album starting out as such could possibly sound.

And I'll wager now that An Albatross will never play here. This transplanted Pennsylvanian is good for at least a word of warning to the band: Do not schedule us. This banker's paradise couldn't host any of Philadelphia-bred An Albatross' wildly off kilter expositions of dissevered carnivalesque dementia. Depending on when and where you catch them, you could witness anything from costumed sock-hopping to orgiastic food fights- and all set to the band's sub-minute, licentious flurries of proletariat dance metal intoxication

Philadelphia's An Albatross returns with We Are the Lazer Viking, an eight-minute contact high of fetid noise rock blither. Electric Suits and Cowboy Boots" corrals one of those minutes. Inside, keyboards buzz chaotically as a manic guitar happily chomps at Eddie Geida's spazzy flashes of vocal - it sounds like playing high-stakes Pac-Man while hanging upside down. Elsewhere (or a conds later, as it were), "Get Faster, Cry for Happy" and the aptly-named "Revolutionary Politics of Dance" accelerate the dancefloor action to ludicrous.

The Philedelphia group, An Albatross, released "We Are The Lazer Viking", an 11 track album/EP in 2003. An odd group, there aren't too many bands out there who sound like An Albatross. Couple that with having one of the greatest band names of the last 20 years and you have a truly unique band. An Albatross: Ed Gleda - Vocals, Harmonica, Tambourine Jake Lisowski - Guitar, Synth Jay Hudak - Bass Jeremy Gewertz - Drums, Percussion. A band that is equal parts Mario music, Refused and Naked City is a hard one to classify

An Albatross is an American noise rock band from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, United States formed in 1999 and known for their chaotic and fun live shows, and a unique, circus-like presentation of their music. The vocals are delivered with an absolutely unapologetic power and projection which mixes with the accompaniment and creates a real wall of complete, often uninterpretable sound.

why is this listed under "miscellaneous"?
Wat!?
I'm guessing it was hard to categorize because it's a single-sided LP. The CD version is an EP - and I think of the release as one - but the fact that the vinyl releases are all listed as LP makes EP something of a misnomer. I'd call it a 12", single-sided EP myself. It's also possible that the band considers the release a full-length, or at least something other than an EP.

A stunning 8 minutes of noise. Heard the first track alone, and had to hear how an album starting out as such could possibly sound. Full of screaming vocals, guitars and tinny electronic melodies, I don't imagine it gets more unique than this, but then, this is my first foray into what ever genre of music this might fit into (Hardcore it says... Hardcore doesn't even begin to describe this release). Deserves a 5/5 for the first track, 'I Am The Lazer Viking' but 'The Revolutionary Politics Of Dance' has a certain attraction, something of a full fledged song despite the 1:13 running time, and 'Wrgggggggrkyyyyyyyyy!!!' is an interesting counterpoint to all the banging, almost out of place, but not, really.
