Why would the Queers want to put out a second live album months prior to releasing Shout at the Queers? For starters, the previous record was only limited to 666 copies -- and only 300 of them had a bonus seven-inch of them doing a horrid version of "Louie Louie." In other words, Shout At is more of a record collector's dream come true than anything else. With Suck this Live, the production is a lot tighter, the lineup features Danny Panic and Danny Vapid from Screeching Weasel fame and the songs blast from one track to the next without a breather (excluding "Beer Break," which only lasts for a few seconds anyway). This is the definitive Queers live album that does them justice. And there's not one song that features anything prior to Love Songs for the Retarded album, which is a good thing.
