Who's Got the 10 1/2?
Label: Sst Records
Henry name-checking Black Sabbath during the intro to "Annihilate This Week" is only topped by his incredible stand up routine during "Slip It In." Ginn plays guitar like he'd moved beyond normal human capabilities (which he had), bass ninja Kira is in the fold and Rollins, as usual, is riveting. Who's Got the 10 1/2? is proof that by the time this was recorded, in the summer of 1985, Black Flag had emerged as a truly ferocious rock band, with long hair and everything. Half the joy of this album is just listening to them play together. Henry practically screams his eyes out. He even gets away with rapping during "Louie, Louie."
