1. TEENAGE MONK 2. HATE SONG 3. COSY 4. IF WE ARE DEAD 5. ACTION TIME 6. RELAX released 1993 This is the second of Bleach's two mini lp's, immeasurably better than Hard, and, if not for the last two tracks, could be their best release. Teenage Monk is fast, hard, has some real groovy bass in the middle, and even some very un-Bleach like doo-doodoo-ing in the middle, but it works well. Hate Song is the song the band have been waiting to sing for four years, a rallying call to the emotionally estranged and bitter amongst us, starting off theatrically with it's long intro, before the ire starts in earnest. Cosy marches along in a military style, but still sounds soft and, well, cosy, with some nice lyrics. If We Are Dead is obviously a favourite as you may have guessed, fading in and building up with hard Salli outlining the day to day monotony and frustration of her futile existence, before soft Salli comes in to tell us " the perfect moment is here, and I am falling apart ". Classic Bleach, but, after that, the standard slips a little, Action Time would maybe have been more at home on Hard, and the lp finishes with a curious cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Relax. Great novelty value, but it soon wears off after a few listens, leaving you wondering why they covered that particular song and wether these are the same people who wrote songs like Burn, Headless and Hate Song. Surely not?
