Suicidal Tendencies - How Will I Laugh Tomorrow (When I Can't Even Smile Today) (LP)
Originally released in 1988, Suicidal Tendencies' third LP, How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today, was a major turning point for Mike Muir and his Venice, CA crew. Led by Muir's sardonic sneer, How Will I Laugh.... grinds with beyond-punk prowess and biting social commentary that pushed Suicidal from Pendelton n' bandana'd clad, Pepsi-chuggin' hardcore heroes to flexible, skateboard-obsessed thrashers who would give legends like Anthrax, Slayer and Metallica a run for their monies. "Trip At The Brain" kicks things open with the firepower ST was already known for with the likes of "Pledge Your Allegiance" and the title track proving that Muir and crew were a force unto themselves - which continues to this day. Long out of print on vinyl in the US, HWILTWICEST is back with the unforgettable anthems, speed and street-smarts that have made Suicidal Tendencies a competition-crushing force in their own right.
