When In Rome, Do As The Vandals (Yellow Vinyl)
Released on December 21, 2009
This is the miraculous follow up to the classic EP Peace Thru Vandalism. We call it miraculous because after achieving the impossible by making their first EP on Epitaph Records into a radio smash, they defied all odds by doing the exact same thing, but even bigger, on their second try with Lady Killer climbing to the top of the alternative radio charts and actually finishing higher than songs like Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell on KROQ’s top 106 songs for 1984.
Before there was the Beastie Boys’ Licensed To Ill, before there was NWA, there was Lady Killer and the Vandals pathetically constructed home console turntable (w/ 8-track) worn by the lead singer with a guitar strap. It was called the “scratch-box” and it was all-wrong but the Vandals didn’t know and didn’t care. That was their brand of punk rock from the O.C.
