Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-11-14 
Self dubbed "Uke Billy Punk" - power pop infused with ukulele. Short songs that feature insightful acerbic lyrics, often contrasted with "nice" cutesy music. Great stuff by a guy who is making a stand for the middle aged: he has worked in entertainment with a long list of storied names from Boy George to Paul Oakenfield, Queen to Fatboy Slim. He has a lot to say. Play with Half Japanese, Phantom Limbs (Tucson band, see vinyl). Track 4 “Man Bun” could easily become a cult classic a la Dr Demento.

FCCs on 1, 6, 7, 10(!) safe harbor safe except 10

1) (4:07) FCC quick "fuckin" late, too bad - surfy subtle sexy 2)* (2:39) rockin power pop "I hate you you hate me". 3) (2:38) "heart and soul" uke song with traditional 50's romantic pop feel, Dinah Shore, Welk 4)*** (2:11) "Man Bun" cutesy music belies acerbic lyrics denigrating the Man Bun ("you look like a girl named Brooklyn") 5) (3:14) upbeat pop 6) (2:40) FCC ("shit") kinda perverse. 7) (3:07) FCC "shitfaced" too bad. 8) (3:21) walking bass, innuendo, sexy 9) (2:21) upbeat commentary on loneliness. 10) FCCS FCCS FCCS NO NO NO (lyrics are Fuck you fuck you fuck you... ooo la la).
