I am pretty sure this is the same Sam Gas Can of Cassette Gods blog fame (check it out here
if you haven’t already). The artwork is a background of some nicely silk-screened bricks with “Sam Gas Can” in what looks like some very pac-man-esque font in green on top. There is also a card with the song titles and a somewhat cryptic statement extolling the virtues of Garage Band. Through the silver spray paint I can just barely make out the letters that tell me that this cassette once contained the music of one Richard Marx.
What had been dubbed over the previous multiplatinum hits sounded like some blown out, digitized paen to early Eric Gaffney penned Sebadoh. I personally am pro Gaffney, so that is a good thing. The B-side sounds like some sort of digital lo-fi kids show theme song on cough syrup, lots of whistling, shockingly, this too is a good thing.
This tape is short, real short, but the quality of over quantity rule applies here, and this release definitely falls into the quality end of the spectrum. 8/10 -- Kevin Richards (8 July, 2009)
