The opening tune, "Nothing's From Today," with its chiming guitar opened the door into another dimension ... Then, there was the convincer -- track 2, "Now I Remember," an explosion of sight, sound, mind, drums, chimes and Eastern-influenced guitar madness, sent far over the wall midway through with a wailing scream from Weiss. The rest was just dessert: the brutal-nasty fuzz guitar line that provided the kick to The Standells' "Medication"; the romp-stomp of The Loved Ones' "Surprise Surprise"; the poppy, full-on, near-insane swirl of "Tellin' Those Lies"; "Cheated and Lied," which sounded like the theme to a '60s secret agent series; "Borrowed Time," commenced with a Middle Eastern guitar curlicue that set the tone to another agent-series-theme-in-wait; the appropriately gloomy overtones of "Dark as My Day" and "Not to Be in Love"; and the band's most sensitive song, the smart strummer "Tears (Only Dry)." In its time, this was a 12-song record. (The enhanced CD has eight bonus cuts, including the aforementioned original "Nothing's From Today," the ace stomper "Doin' It Well" and a rough version of "We're Outta Here" used as a flexidisc with Ron Rimsite's legendary garage zine 99th Floor.)

For me the vipers along with the lyres were the best band that appeared on blooming 80's garage revival scene. They werent just another fuzz drenched cavestompin band. On the contrary their songs had sixties sound and feeling. For instance beautiful rickenbackerish jangle on Tears (only dry).
Thanx so much for this share ... I've been looking for this brilliant gem for ages.
