We’re not freaks, we’re not hip…

There is something really comforting about a bands first record when it references almost every cliche from the sixties. Nasally vocals, swirly Augie Meyers organs, plinky pianos and 12 string guitars and self conscious lyrics as well as disjointed backing singing and the shifting tempos as the band gets excited halfway through the song.

There is also something to be said for the almost innocent amateurism that shines through with every track. The seeming disbelief that someone is taking the time to record this and the vaguely seedy feel to the songs. Late nights, cheap booze and bad taco’s is the fodder of this album and it’s a good one.

The Green On Red saga continues, they may be one of my favorite memories of the 80’s.
