Not Lame Recordings

For those unfamiliar with the story, a quick recap: Volume 1, issued in late ''97 by Distortions, claimed to be tracks found on an unlabelled reel of tape purchased at a Philadelphia flea market. Volume 2 claims to be more "lost" recordings from the private collection of the drummer, tracked down by our friends at Octopus, somewhere in the isles of Spain. Okay, whatever. I don''t buy that crap for a minute, and even a casual listen to the tracks on this disc will reveal that this stuff wasn''t recorded anywhere NEAR the time-frame claimed in the liners (mid ''70s), but that doesn''t matter at all. This a top-drawer collection of fucking EXCELLENT Beatles-style pop tunes, sung with a wry wit and a genuine ear for pop hooks. "Timothy," my favorite track on the record, details the adventures of a guy misdiagnosed by an inept optometrist, who persists in wearing the wrong glasses so he can keep smoking pot for his ever-worsening glaucoma. "Dark Side of the Sun" recalls the cracked pop of Syd Barrett''s Madcap Laughs LP, and" The Great Northeast," "Morrell Park," and "(I Wanna Do Anything) But Look For A Job" detail the boredom and disappointment of life in mid-America with a unique sense of humor, along with the impossibly catchy hooks. This is a great record, far and away better than anything coughed up by a major label in the last I don''t know how many years, so why persist in the transparent "artifacts" thing? If I was writing songs this uniformly excellent, I''d want CREDIT for ''em. This is unreservedly recommended for fans of the Beatles, Todd Rundgren and similar pop geniuses. Great, great stuff.
