CKY – Volume 1 (1999)

Volume 1 is another one of those records that got played to death in my teenage years. Listening again as an adult, it seems almost like a jumble of different sessions stitched together rather than a cohesive album, but that isn’t too much of an issue when the songs are of this quality.

From the instant mega hit of the opening track, the abstract heaviness of “Rio Bravo” or “Lost In A Contraption”, or the downright odd “Human Drive In Hi-Fi” or “To All Of You”, Volume 1 showcases a band that, yes, are admittedly still finding their feet after a bazillion name changes, but are also alive with interesting ideas and concepts.
