The Plasmatics

Beyond the Valley of 1984

For the band's second full-length album, drummer Stu Deutsch had departed and his place was temporarily taken by Neil Smith. Here, we find Wendy, furious over the severe beatings she and Rod had suffered at the hands of the Milwaukee vice squad, screaming angrily about the idiots running our society in songs like "Masterplan" and "Pig is a Pig." Taken as a whole, this is definitely the best of the band's albums. --Anonymous

“It was a clear blue morning on the fateful day. Silver wings of destruction the enola gay. Unleash the awesome power. Release it from it's cage. Opening the doorway to the nuclear age...”
