8/10 Phil Staff review, 12 September 2012
Trunk is a label I’ve become most fond of over the years. They’ve released some cheesey records, some stupid records and some great great records and to remind you of their consistently interesting output we have the ‘Refined Lard’ compilation sampler CD thingy which has just arrived here.
This comp CD straddles the back catalogue like a dirty whore and it covers the jazzy end of things, some rare film music, old kids telly programs, some porn star related shenanigans, some spoken word buffet car nonsense and some vintage electronics. It’s nothing short of fun! The album is on a whacky easy listening tip with there being lots of old tunes which fit nicely around the more recognisable output of Trunk. There’s also quite a few things on here that I’ve never heard before and I think they’ve only been available digitally. It’s a weird old mix of tunes but listening to it all in one go it makes some warped kind of sense. But for 30 tracks for a penny less than 4 pounds you really can’t cocking argue.
