Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2012-03-16 
Jenifer Herrara from Royal Trux/RTX’s latest masterpiece of dementia. RIYL: Pussy Galore, Bongwater, Buttholes, Chrome, Royal Trux, Peaches, Glass Candy. Deathbomb Arc label artists? Fucked up slathering of psyche, funk, rock, noise, whatnot. Cool shit for people who have done too many drugs and nothing else on their iPod does it for them anymore. Takes a swipe at disco, 70’s bombast rock, and puts it all through a fuzz box. Check out the song titles to get a feel for where this is coming from.

1) (3:24) swirling wah wah, vocals, drums, crazed shit
2) (3:29) fucked up disco for want of a better description, strange funkiness in the mess
3) (3:32) appropriately named “acid song”, smarmy
4) (4:23) a near 70’s cowbell beat plugging away, lots of retro guitar effects
5) (4:11) big messed up funk
6) (2:08) upbeat funky, swallowed FCC’s? avoid maybe
7) (3:24) chill electro funk with electric guitar
8) (3:45) big cheesy rock, 70’s guitar riffage
9) (3:12) cheesiness continues with a funky bluesy song
10) (4:08) huge mass of swirl to start this, then tripped out funkiness
11) (2:22) upbeat rock, layers of guitar, still weird
12) (3:36) 80’s synth feel and beat, cheesy weird
13) (3:44) head nodding 70’s cock rock feel, strange
