Review Summary: Straight forward live punk jams from an early AFI.

2 of 4 thought this review was well written

AFI. Oh my dear God if there was ever a band I’ve fapped to more.. So you probably don’t care about my disturbing habits but you might care that sometime in 1994 AFI released a live EP entitled, ”Eddie Picnic's All Wet”. Oh and did I mention that Davey Havok is on the cover? I could stare at it for hours.. I guess that picnic isn’t the only thing that’s getting a little wet.

Now for the most part the listening experience is a rather iffy one. Davey opens all five songs explaining what they’re called and/or what they’re about. For example he explains the song ”Nyquil” is about sleeping. Did I mention this was when AFI was still a fairly straight forward hardcore/ punk band? And remember this EP is live so all in all the production is pretty shoddy. The instruments generally sound smashed together and paired with Davey’s youthful vocal outing a genuine punk vibe completes the package. Havok opens ”Who Said You Could Touch Me?” by saying, ”who said Jeff could put his hand on my butt?”. It’s comical and definitely nothing you’d expect of the new, sleeker version of AFI. ”Love Is a Many Splendored Thing” is, as Havok explains, about loving your neighbor. It’s slightly ironic as a lot of shouting of the phrase, ”I hate you!” takes place throughout the short song.

Okay, I’m just going to sum this up quickly. If you are an AFI fan than of course you’ll enjoy this and all of its novelty. If however you’ve never heard anything from the band this is no place to start. The production value is poor and the songs are really short. So if you’re not into pleasuring yourself to AFI or anything they do there really is no reason to listen to this.

Pros

A rare, live EP by AFI

Cons

Production is poor
All songs sound like average punk songs
