THE ACHTUNGS - WELCOME TO HELL LP
Teen Punk is a universal language. Red Cross’ Born Innocent is a masterpiece. A little is more than a lot. If you disagree with any of the preceding, you can probably skip The Achtung’s new album “Welcome to Hell.” But you really ought to reconsider. This very short record feels even shorter, because the folks who made it sound like they’re having a blast. Perhaps you should join them. Features the hits “You’re Not My Friend,” “I Wanna Be Mean,” and “They sent Me Back to Hell.” They’re from Finland, but you’d never guess. On the Going Underground label, so you know it’s messed up.
