Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2010-07-02 
Loud, charged up garage punk/lo-fi rawk, weirdo pop and related sounds from . Nothing fancy just guitars, bass, vocals, drums some occasional sax, keyboards, etc. 21 tunes from the G.Worms career (so far) from 2001-2009. The Guinea Worms are Will Foster and a variety of his fellow Ohioans backing him up. The title's a reference to Sabbath's "A National Acrobat".

RECORD ONE/SIDE 1/A
(((1)))) “Doot-dooting” loud rhythm, push-pull tempo not far from The Cows.
(FCC “SHIT” sung twice)
(((2))) Bassy, loose groove with weirdo-nutjob vocals & girly chorus that goes “nah-naa”.
(((3))) (FCC “Fuck” sung once) Folksy, odd drunky Elvis-y loose rock?
(((4))) More very weird drunk rock. I don’t get it.
((((5)))) Ramblin’ country-folk rock wreck like a drugged out Sebadoh jammin’ on a porch in the Carolinas.
((6)) Uninspired twangy slow punk/rawk like a lazy Jesus Lizard.

RECORD ONE/SIDE 2/B
(((1))) Slow oddly reggae tempo, bassy, rambling vocals/lyrics then a new wavey rollout.
((((2)))) Airy – vocals + bass and a smidge of guitar. Then builds into a nice loud vs. quiet moody rock tune.
((((3)))) Classic punk tone, mid-pace swaggery tempo, kinda like an Americanized version of The Fall. Lots of well-played repetition and refs to Frank Lloyd Wright.
((((4)))) More Fall-like rumble & bassy rock n’ repetition. Nice guitar tone, too. Brilliantly “stoopid rawk damage.


SIDE 2/RECORD ONE/SIDE C
((((1)))) Shouted pop with piano. Swinging tempo and loud vocals again conjuring Couch Flambeau – Midwestern weirdos think alike. Only problem is the dragged out chorus.
(((((2)))) Rockin’ riff, near shouted vocals, nice guitar tone, more punky this time out.
((3)) Sharp tuned guitar & junky tempo/vocals. It’s way too lazy sounding, garage wreck & a lot less rock/rawk.
(((4))) Very weird “circus pop”/new wave (?) with demented lyrics about the BTK Killer.
(((5))) Slow & fuzzy riff – twangy loud rock. Not bad.

RECORD 2/SIDE 2/SIDE D
((((1)))) Fast, simple distorted punk + to the point.
(((2))) (FCC “Shit” sung once.”Fuck” sung 3x). Loose & swaggery, nicks the main riff to Pink Floyd’s “Money” then straight up garage-rock twang & back.
(((3))) (FCC “Shit”sung once) Slow, keyboard doo-doot lo-fi pop thing with Thurston Moore/Sebadoh type of vocals
(((4))) Weird, melted down loony rock with demented circus-like tempo. Seems like its something that Crispin Glover would sing about (“Zingers” that is).
(((5))) VERY stripped down, bassy new-wave-ish “goof rock” with a ton of repetition. Rather late 80’s weirdness like Dead Milkmen, Couch Flambeau, Big Stick and the like.
((((6))))) Nice acoustic guitar interlude.
((7)) 1-2 beat and a ton of distortion & insane repetition & a bunch of stuff that makes no sense.
