Slip It In
Label: Sst Records
Here, Black Flag continue the weirdness that started confusing their fans beginning with My War (released five months before Slip It In). Besides having the iconic title cut and "Black Coffee," Greg Ginn's totally unhinged guitar playing really took a leap on this record. He turns accepted rock and punk lead styles inside out, never playing the "right" note and creating total mayhem with his solos. The first appearance of Rollins' punk rock Jim Morrison emerges in the creepifying "Rat's Eyes" and he even takes on the role of psychic healer to the kids in "You're Not Evil." There are no bad songs.
