Sitting down to listen to this album, I was suddenly overwhelmed with the same sentiment I?m sure a middle-school teacher gets when hes received the next installment of some remissive little fuck?s diary on snow crabs and bowel-movements (instead of his essay on huckleberry finn, again).. See, I?ve confronted this fucker?s mother who has repeatedly assumed the sleepover position, dismissing my agitated composure and continuing to felate the classroom supplies, in my favour? Y?know ? lets just drop the metaphor business here for a sec - I think I may be over-extending myself on this one. To update: the semi-inept scholar is the band Droopy Septum and the over-zealous mother is this ?DIY? everybody?s talking about.
(This is probably the worst ?noise? album I?ve ever heard.)
Normally now is when I would launch into some witty scenarios indicative of the album?s aural descriptors- but I find its really hard to work with a single oscillator or line feedback or whatever. This is somber Rhode Island tedium by horny retail employees to be sure. My favorite track is preggo, which I now understand to mean pregnant; I think it?s the best name out of amateur, hardcore, oral, shaved and voyeur. When I asked my roommate what it meant she told me it was thank you in Italian.
The best thing about getting this in the mail was the astonishingly low-fi packaging. Pictured just below the track titles is an impressive snap-shot of some (previously unheard of) wizard double-penetration ? but not the fucking lord of the rings bullshit you?ve come to expect ? these wizards look like first and second generation mario brothers, bloated with san pelegrino and ricotta. Worthy of a Foxy-Digitalis 10/10 any day! This is truly the embodiment of back-of-the-refrigerator DIY scum. But seriously ? if anybody wants a copy of this, let me know. Its limited to 10 copies (why anybody would send this in for review in this case is questionable) -and I can make a dub. 10/10 -- Andrew Zukerman (26 September, 2005)
