After Gerry Hannah (more HERE) went underground, vocalist Brian Goble and guitarist Mike Graham replaced him with Ron Allan for The Subhumans' (more HERE) one-album dalliance with the influential-but-iniquitous record label, SST Records. For those keeping score at home, that means the Subhumans' first two full-length albums are solely owned by (different) labels who will neither keep the albums available or release them back to the band. While the album is hampered by the loss of Hannah's song, it's still got a slew of classic Subhumans moments like, "Canada's Favourite Sport", "Slap in the Face" and "No Wishes, No Prayers".
