Peter Stampfell & The Worm All Stars - A Sure Sign of Something|
Peter Stampfell is something like your drunk, uncle from the country who plays violin and banjo, sings about wine, women and honky-tonking but has some more experimentally recorded instruments rather than the same old basic country sound. Some of the better songs got some major FCCs, so that’s a bummer. So read the review carefully, but you won’t be disappointed by any track, Peter has quite an endearing psycho-hillbilly style. Hilarious liner notes too, Peter’s been around the block.
Review by Rev. R4D4
Best tracks *3,4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14
1. (2:50)Fucking Sailors in Chinatown. Uh, that's some BIG *FCCs here.
2. (2:51)The Tennessian train rolling home complete with the actual train obliterating the song at the end.
3. (4:33) THE salute to outliving the normals & being an outlaw all the way. Fades out for a few seconds and then comes back, so don't freak out. A great track. Possible *FCC – says batshit but pretty hard to decipher with his delivery.
4.(3:18) Hoe Down with a little too much moonshine. But is there ever really too much? Yee haw!
5. (2:04) slow pace with some creaky floors and dark fiddle moves and a weird chorus time change.
6. (2:47) I'm doing you, just because. Ol' Peter gets slightly dirty but *FCC 'shit doesn’t stink.' damn.
7. (2:19) Peg & Awl – automation in 1801. Psycho-stuff, very cool.
8. (4:52) It's drunken and it's a waltz. A sad, lonely tune - late night listening/playing. Nice.
9. (1:47) Any song about ribs, I'm gonna like. Has a slight 'ghost riders in the sky' beat.
10. (4:30) Taking yer lady out for a nice night of bowling. “C’mon babe, let’s Carpe Diem”
11. (3:00) kinda gets a little rambling here, kid’s toys squeeking and stream of consciousness, but the returns to a form, sorta. Still fun!
12. (2:21) another ode to the girls of the mountain. HARD-STOMPER. DOUBLE YEE-HAWNESS!
13. (2:31)A good ol fashioned sing a long, and this song just might change the world with it’s glossolalia potential.
14. (3:24) Be Sad, for all the good tymes now gone cause of the global corporate plutocracy killing us all. A true lament.
15. (4:58) a sweet instrumental to close out the album, medium pace with some tasty noodling on banjo, mandolin, percussion.
16 - hidden track, starts 30 secs in, lots *FCCs about a very un-PC night in Edinburgh.
