AllMusic Review by

An Invention to Planet Mace is named after Untamed Youth bassist and, according to the liner notes, King of Men Steve Mace. The Untamed Youth managed to channel the original charge they absorbed from listening to rockabilly, surf, and '60s punk records and spit it back out with vigor and unabashed humor. Highlights include the twangy guitar/ Farfisa organ, hully gully injected "Without a Word of Warning," "Two Wheel Show Stopper," "Fire Breathin 32," and "Mailbox Jamboree" (in which the joys of mailbox smashing are explored,) a swipe at Billy Childish on "I'm More Punk Than You!," the gravelly vocal ranting on "Beer Belly Baby" and "Beer Bust Blues pt 2," and instrumental Watusi mayhem of "Ghost Wave," "Scramble,r" and "Jet's Julep." Seek out this Estrus release from The Untamed Youth and live it up!
