 Agony Shorthand
These tempos and the sheer power & speed of the delivery on this fine record mitigate a whole host of problems, not the least of which is the lyrics and all the bat/cave/crucifix/coffin tomfoolery they were peddling.
When "Autopsy" came out posthumously in 1987, a lot of us were truly floored, because outside of "Black Cross" we'd never heard 45 Grave play so fast.
This collection nets you that wild-ass "Black Cross" 45, certainly one of the top 197 punk 45s of all time, a large batch of 90-second howlers, the novelty "Monster Mash"-like "Riboflavin Flavored, Non-Carbonated, Polyunsaturated Blood" and even an early "Partytime" that almost doesn't suck.

 Splendid Magazine reviews 45 Grave: Only the Good Die Young
It has also been rumored that Courtney Love "borrowed" much of her personal style from zombie-lookin' 45 Grave frontwoman Dinah Cancer (hey, it was funny back then!), but missed the bit about it being ironic.
Their performance is still a little looser than you'd expect from most of today's media-aware punk bands, but they fit a bunch of their "hits" and a smattering of their trademark humor into the hour-long set.
That may well be what 45 Grave were doing here, but when you're craving "Bad Love"'s maudlin slouch or "My Type"'s incendiary furor, you'll have a hard time keeping your finger off the "skip" button for the full 8:39.

 Rykodisc Catalog - Sleep In Safety - 45 Grave   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
It doesn't hurt at all that Cancer is a much better singer than the chronically groaning Rozz Williams, for one thing, while the clear sense of humor 45 Grave never denied ensured that the band never entered the realms of relentlessly ridiculous self-parody.
There's no question that the band's legendary "Partytime" is the high point, a stop-start, quiet/loud horror of a goth landmark that lets Cancer sneak in a bit of pretty creepiness before everyone fires up into a classic rock chug with a great shout-along chorus that Joan Jett would be proud of.
What really works best is how the music is the most truly dark part of the band, Graves' bass playing and Culter's post-Banshees guitar parts hitting all the right notes.

A mainstay of the 45 Grave catalog, Only The Good Die Young (originally released in ’89) captures the band with killer sound at a sold-out ’88 reunion show in Hollywood.

While the fidelity varies like crazy, even the murkier cuts often contain something special, and as a portrait of the band at their most experimental and most hilarious (often at the same time!), it can't be beat.
Recorded at one of many one-off L.A. reunion shows the Grave did in the late '80s -- in this case, at Hollywood's Raji's club in July 1988 -- Young captures the four members having fun with their back catalog, and a few new numbers to boot.
If anything, no longer being an active band seemed to give the quartet a chance to be even crisper in terms of performance, though, arguably, fans of the sheer live chaos of their earlier days (as documented on Debasement Tapes) will miss that here.

Rispetto ai Christian Death i 45 Grave erano rimasti legati alle loro origini punk, sia nella spavalderia del sound sia nel sarcasmo delle pose.
Il secondo 45 giri, Phantoms, uscito nel 1982, e` tipico di come il gruppo dissacri il punkrock con atmosfere macabre, ovvero con ritmi piu` lenti e arrangiamenti piu` sofisticati.

Though it would be near impossible to pinpoint the exact scope of their [bad] influence, suffice to say that 45 Grave far predate both the much-hyped Bat Cave movement in the UK and the formation of Christian Death and that Nikki Sixx even admitted in print that Motley Crue stole 45 Grave's easily-recognizable goathead-pentagram logo!

Unlike scene contemporaries Christian Death, 45 Grave's liberal embrace of surf rock, party-down metal, and horror-movie exploitation kept the music fun while still scaring the crap out of concerned parents.
While the sound could be better, the album successfully captures 45 Grave's morbidly twisted essence for future generations.

 Only the Good Die Young: Live - .45 Grave - Music Reviews
Everyone's in fine form -- not even Rob Graves, who would unfortunately pass on a couple of years later, sounds like he should belong to the undead (image and lyrics of the band notwithstanding).
The irreverent spirit that ran throughout the Grave rears its head near the start, when the four tackle "Take Five" -- yes, that "Take Five" -- and, after an initially straightforward interpretation by Paul B. Cutler on guitar, unsurprisingly turn it into a launching pad for another wiggy blend of goofy mayhem.
Dinah Cancer snarls her head off with all the fire evident on earlier recordings, investing the punk thrash of "My Type" and the more measured but hardly less powerful "Sheila," to name but two highlights, with the feeling that she's about to rip the audience's heads clean off.

 .45 Grave : Debasement Tape - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
From out of nowhere -- or, more accurately, out of Grave drummer Don Bolles' massive collection of outtakes and live tapes -- Debasement Tapes saw the light in 1993, presenting the band in all their scuzzily creepy glory.
Other tracks, like "Bobby" and "R2D2 Is the Buddha," are home and garage recordings as out-there as it gets, consisting of rough noise collages using everything from bedpans filled with broken glass to random TV nonsense, all of which wouldn't sound too out of place on Negativland radio broadcasts.
Definitely not the place to start for newcomers to the Grave's dark realm, but anyone taken by the band's official studio work will find lots to love here.
