Originally released in 1995 on Metal Blade Records, You Have the Right to Remain Silent is shock rock from members of the band GWAR and other musicians connected to the band. Peter Lee started this band after being shot in a failed carjacking attempt. The idea for X-Cops sparked while filming a commercial segment for Gwar’s Skulhedface. Lee and Dave Brockie were dressed as police officers and Lee pondered, “What would be cooler than a bunch of cops playing kick-ass rock and roll?” This led to Lee, Brockie and GWAR’s drum technician, Mike Dunn, starting X-Cops as a three-piece band.
You Have the Right to Remain Silent is more metal-oriented than what GWAR was releasing at the time (1995), with speed metal riffs, drums & relentless energy. While the lyrics are roll-on-the-floor laughable (intentionally), the music is seriously amazing. Highly recommended for those with a taste for offensive/tasteless/sick humor! If you’re a fan of GWAR & know what GWAR’s all about, then you’ve been missing out & should pick up this remastered album right away! X-Cops is an essential listening experience! This is the first time the album has ever been reissued and the first time ever released on vinyl (blood red splatter on clear vinyl). It comes with a full color 12x12 insert with lyrics.
