"Nothing's Shocking" was certainly one of the most influential cds I heard at the time. It's pretty anathema to my usual tastes; WAY too ! R A W K ! for me... I think it was a combination of Perry's artsy lyrics along with the primal drumming that did it for me. I may be the only one to find the drumming a bit "baggy" right? Thanks tvd. Shamus
