As the story goes, The Exploding Fuck Dolls were one of the
pioneer bands of the Orange County punk scene, which has since grown
into a well-respected musical hotbed. The nineteen recordings on
Crack the Safe, a Disaster Records "archival"
project, were all recorded between 1992 and 1997, featuring a rotating
lineup of performers and a varied array of sounds. The songs all
share an explosive, melodic aesthetic, and will certainly be enjoyed
by lovers of good, old fashioned punk rock.
As is always the case with their genre, Exploding Fuck Dolls
are not for everyone. With a repertoire as aggressive and
punk-dedicated as theirs, this band is not out to make fans out of
non-believers. DIY numbers "Some Other Day" and
"Fish Date" will not extend their fan base beyond the punk
rocker contingent. In short, if you're into the genre, you have
an obligation to check Crack the Safe out; if you aren't, it
will merely make for an intriguing artifact.
