Review from forcedexposure.com:
Star Spangled Banger was a short-lived studio project that resulted in a sole, self-titled album and single in 1973. With the record company closing soon after its release, the album was quickly deleted.
Principal songwriter John Brownrigg originally hailed from Liverpool and had played in several bands during the Merseybeat boom of the early ’60s — as his own brick on the Cavern Club wall of fame attests. The band were put into the studio with engineer/producer Gil Matthews.
Armed with a stack of sound effects records, the album was recorded at odd hours and resulted in an eclectic mix of progressive rock, protest songs and ballads — with a healthy dose of humor (witness: ‘Fancy Underpants!’). Added to this mix are: explosions, backwards tapes, crazy keyboards, nuclear explosions, crashing aeroplanes and fuzzed-out psych guitar.
