Happy Days, Sweetheart

Ethyl Meatplow

Dali Records

Following an early tape and a variety of independent singles, Ethyl Meatplow’s one album, Happy Days, Sweetheart, appeared in 1993, a clattering, happily leering industrial-dance blast. Produced with a cinematic vibe by Barry Adamson, its first full song “Suck” was an anthemic yell, Carla Bozulich and John Napier whipping up an aggro and campy goth/punk vibe while Biff Sanders’s percussion added groove and stomp. From there it’s a giddy trip, songs like “Queenie,” “Devil’s Johnson” and “Abazab” soundtracking a party for the end of the world.
