AllMusic Review by

This is where L7 jugular ripping meets the subterranean scuzz rock of Throbbing Gristle and Motörhead with exceptionally disastrous results. Made up of ex-members of Rover Girls and In-Stinks and future Ruby frontwoman Lesley Rankine, you would be forgiven for thinking that this was another laborious exercise constructed by industrialized noise terrorists. But Silverfish always had a fusionist, mad-mechanical ear for wrenching out a tune in even the most terrible of circumstances. In a lot of ways, Organ Fan, a major-label release, was the band at their best: hardcore post-punk metal filtered through Stratocaster gabba fronted by a woman who made Kim Gordon sound like Lulu.
