Album Review

Reviewed 2002-10-17 
Rock, blues, classical guitar, skronk, and dissonance, sometimes all at once. Demo tapes and assorted rarities from the perennial "most underrated" influential art-rock-whatever band - if you've never heard em, this may not be any of their classic records but it isn't a bad place to start, either.

1* - catchy witch doctor rock
2* - raspy, quickstep waltz blues
3* - bassy lo-fi slinky strum
4* - slow rev-up into slidy stomp
6* - dirty twang
7 - skronky horns and twangy guitar -> quiet vague conversation
9 - repetetive twang
10 - multiguitar avant dancy poptune
12 - swirly jagged guitar patters w/an almost jazz structure
13* - twittering sax and lots of bashing
14- xylophone, guitar, hoarse shouting - ends abruptly
16* - short, a cappella, recorded over the phone - blues moan
17* - lo-fi psychedelic harmonica blooz
18 - classical electric guitar, live, short
19 - solo harmonica w/a little talking intro & laugh at end - short
20 - solo vox - weird compression at times - short
21 - bluesy stomp w/harmonica
22 - spoken intro, chimey guitars, opaque lyrics and growly vox
24 - fuzzy piano, short
25 - slightly off-kilter classicalish elec. guitar
