Album:

Frizzy-haired Lizzy Borden (a.k.a. Lizzy Boredom to some) is one of those early characters that had some sort of reputation for being bigger than the actual band, always leading stage show flash and theatrics, and always in the forefront: King Diamond, Nasty Ronnie, Betsy Bitch – usually the singer with some part of the band’s name in his/her stage name. It was all part of shock rock, or flash metal, and LB fit right in.The CA quintet start their career with the ep Give ‘Em The Axe, aptly named since they/he took the moniker from the 1892 murderess who destroyed her parents with an axe, features two tracks as traditional as Thanksgiving Day, one speedier number that is a fave LB tune of mine, and a Rainbow cover.The title cut and “Kiss of Death” are cut from the same pattern, but are molded with different elements. Both are moderately-paced with an undertow of NWOBHM influence, but the former is free-spirited and anthemic while the latter pursues a more storytelling gait and demeanor not unlike classic Maiden. Starting off side two with a wallop is “No Time to Lose”, a speedier and more vigorous track with great breaks bridged by fashionable guitar doodles and an energy I had hoped would dominate the future of Mr. Borden. The ep rounds out with a strong updated version of another anthem, “Long Live Rock N Roll”, that I rarely listen to.The music, lead by the paired guitars of Gene Allen and Tony Matuzak, is frenetically active, talented, and played with gumption, but the focal point of Lizzy Borden is, of course, Lizzy Borden and his perpetually piercing lungs that some describe as cheesy and annoying, but remain distinguishable and powerful amongst the melted glam cheddar that was being served hot in L.A. at the time. Some say they are a result of the glam scene. Possible. Well, if glam sounded like this, the scorn it receives from most wouldn’t be as dark a shade of dishwater gray. If glam sounded like this, I would’ve not only been a glam fag, but a proud glam fag.
