In their short history, (only 8 months) Johannesburg, South Africa's Suck released one album in 1971 and created more mayhem than most bands do over a 10-year career. Suck were Louis "Moose" Forer on bass, Steve "Gil" Gilroy on guitar (who worked in the UK with Mick Abrahams from Jethro Tull), Saverio Grande on drums and Andrew Ionnides on vocals. Time To Suck is a hard, psychedelic, highly-charged package of manic drumming, scorching guitars and sublime, wailing vocals. Renowned for their destructive, somewhat scary on-stage antics using weaponry and their anti-war political rants, they managed to become the most controversial band in South Africa. Full of covers from artists of the day including Grand Funk Railroad's "Aimless Lady," and "Sin's A Good Man's Brother," King Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man," Donovan's "Season Of The Witch," Black Sabbath's "War Pigs," and one truly howling, bonkers original, this one is not for moonshine mellow candle folk fans -- this one is a real adrenaline pusher. True South African heaviness that could have gotten even heavier with some more original material if they hadn't immediately disbanded. Produced by Julian Laxton from Freedom's Children.
