Remember how yesterday I mentioned that so far I’m 2 for 2 in picking out good interesting albums just based on their album cover? First one was “No Sound Is Too Taboo” by United Future Organization, the second one is this:
I saw this album sitting there in the avant-garde/electronica/noise section of the store and cracked up when I saw the cover – photographs of moon-men in space suits in all sorts of old-timey settings?? This HAD to be good. Dave said that he had heard them play on Conan O’Brien ages ago and that they were hilarious, so I picked it up to see what they were like. We listened to it when we got back to his place, and I just about died laughing as I tried to guess each synthesized song as it came up. It’s very very very off the wall! Needless to say, they don’t really take themselves very seriously (you’ll see about 3:15 into the song). There’s really no other way I can describe it.
I also picked up an album by KISS frontman Gene Simmons – my coworker Keith fixed me up with a mix cd with this next song on it, and I had been trying to find the same album this song was from with no luck until I saw this album yesterday and guessed correctly that this was it. So, though it doesn’t have “rock” in the title, here’s another rockingly good song for you today:
“Firestarter” [ buy Asshole ]
