A competition was run on the band's message board to suggest album names, with some responses being "Fucked Up by the Grace of God"
and "Taming the Manaconda"
. Another suggestion was "For Those About to Fuck"
, but this was used as the name for the first track instead. The band decided upon a self-titled release instead, deciding that "anything after Cunt
would be a disappointment".
The album itself is labelled by the band as being "Psychodeathrockin’punkpimpin’icedealing gangstashit" and is an attempt to establish the genre of "Anthemic Grind Rock'". With Blood Duster having secured an endorsement from the Black Flys sunglasses brand, Jason Fuller
suggested in one interview that the band had become "corporate rock whores". This album took longer to record than previous Blood Duster albums and features a number of guest appearances including Jay Dunne
from 28 Days, original AC/DC singer Dave Evans
and the complete line-up of Melbourne pop-punk band The Spazzys
. It also contains the singles DrinkFightFuck
The album launch was at the Hi-Fi Bar in Melbourne on October 25th 2003, with the bands Stiff Meat and Earth
This album was surrounded by some controversy. There was originally supposed to be bonus CD-ROM material included with the album but, due to censorship rules in Australia and the distributor not putting ratings on it, this material was censored, along with several photos that were to appear in the CD booklet.
The CD-ROM was to include live footage of Blood Duster performing Kill Kill Kill, 66.6 on Your FM Dial and Derek, as well as a video of the band performing DrinkFightFuck at the single's launch. There was also a video entitled "D-Unit's Metal For The Brain 2005" that was censored because it showed certain band members taking drugs, namely cocaine. Some of the material that was supposed to be on the CD-ROM can be accessed at the band's website using the HippieKillTeam password hidden in the CD case.
Although some photos were censored in the compiling of the CD booklet, it still contains 125 small colour photos, including some featuring nudity and oral sex.
