Saint Vitus hollows victim LP (1985)
1.War Is Our Destiny
6.Just Friends (Empty Love)
7.Prayer for the (M)Asses
The Fact that Saint Vitus were on Black Flag Guitarist Greg Ginns label, SST always puzzled me as a youth. Of course years later, I get it. By the mid 80's those SST guys pretty much were over punk/hc and were much more into experimental hippie stuff(as it wasn't as restrictive). Saint Vitus sure looked like hippies, but they played a bad ass brand of Doomy, stoner rock thats gone on to influence so many bands and genres even still today.
My fondest memories of listening to and discovering these guys go back about 17 years ago, sitting in my friend Kevin's bedroom (at his parents house of course), smoking bongs, and listening to Saint Vitus over, and over, and over. Get into it man... feel the power.
