Album Information
Weapons was originally released in 1982. The All Music Guide writes “As the album cover and the unsubtle lyrics make plain, the weapons in the title track are, as Carole Pope sings, "my lips, my breasts, my body." Don't think for an instant, though, that this band is making some cheap sexual innuendoes. Everything is for a dead-serious purpose, in this case to illustrate dysfunctional inter-gender relations. The band is uncharacteristically upbeat about a personal relationship in "Lifeline." Nona Hendryx sings on a couple of songs. The album ends with a sarcastic look backwards with a combination "No. 9/Day in the Life" crescendo that mocks the "Paisley Generation."

This remstered version of the Weapons contains 2 bonus tracks: "On With The Show" and the "Deca-dance (Mega Mix)".

The CD sounds remarkably fresh, especially the title track which the times have finally caught up with.
