Boyd Rice

Bad boy Boyd Rice as Rod McKuen with anti-social personality disorder. Frankly, it’s hard to take Rice’s schtick at face value. If you don’t, you can both enjoy his music and have a laugh. The seething-with-hatred People shouldn’t be listened to at work on a Monday morning. I’m warning you.
Other highlights include Disneyland Can Wait and the best-ever song by Lee Hazelwood I’d Rather Be Your Enemy, rendered all the more frightening when sung by a pleasant looking man who happens to dress like an occult SS officer. Some other touchstones on this album are Anton laVey, Heraclitus, Ragnar Redbeard and the Carpenters. This is also a meeting of the Death In June/Sol Invictus/Blood Axis glee-club (Douglas P, Tony Wakeford, Michael Moynihan), plus Rose McDowall.
