8/10 Ant 11 April 2013

This guy is totally rockin’ a strong moustache and mullet combo in the photo on the inner sleeve. This record was an autobiographical concept album recorded in 1981 in from a Detroit ex-garage-rocker-cum-accidental-no-wave-tourist. The record just oozes an extremely endearing non-pretentious, humble almost naive vibe.

Not a single copy was distributed back in the day which was a shame as this man can really play. Kudos to Drag City for uncovering this gem from Detroit’s rich underground musical history. “A dour confessional masterpiece”, I can’t really better that sentiment.

[ADDENDUM: I couldn’t help overhearing this as Ant was reviewing it - it’s really brilliant! Warm, naive no-wave post-punk pop, like Daniel Johnston crossed with Suicide (if you can imagine that). You should buy it. That’s all. -Mike]
