Spastik Children:
Fred “Mad” Cotton alias “Johnny Problem”- lead vocals
James Hetfield alias “Bobby Brady” - drums & vocals
Cliff Burton - bass & vocals
Jim Martin - guitar & vocals
James “Flunky” McDaniel alias “Slucky McDonald”- guitar

Kirk Hammett alias “Goddamn It” - bass
Jason Newsted - bass & vocals

The original drummer before Hetfield was a guy called Jumbo. On stage almost every band member of Spastik Children used an alias name. The Spastics had never practiced and they played rather ludicrous songs. After Cliff died Kirk and Jason took over the bass duties.

The descriptions of some songs:

“What’s That Smell” - is about farts
“Thermos” - is a song Steve Martin sang in the movie “The Jerk”
“Bra Section” - is about tossing-off to a department store catalog’s bra section and having your mom walk in on the bathroom on you
“Benefit Baby” - is about a guy who sponges off of girls for free food
“Cunt” - is about an ex-girlfriend

More Information :
