DEHUMANIZERS with PAMELA DES BARRES: “Pamela” b/w “Miss P”: 7” 33

Ms. Des Barres is, of course, the celebrated rock groupie of the ‘60s and ‘70s whose 1987 memoir, I’m with the Band, set the bar for Groupie Lit, such as it is. The Dehumanizers play music. On this record, Miss P’s breathy utterances are sampled over the Dehumanizers’ odd grooves. I can see this record having its primary value as something clever (?) college radio DJs can play as a sound bed when they’re reading their PSAs at the top of the hour, but, above and beyond that, I can say with some assurance that I am not with this band. BEST SONG: “Pamela.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Miss P.” “Pamela” is far too informal, ya know? FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: This record was released six years ago and was reviewed in Razorcake in 2012. –Rev. Nørb (PIG / Little Mafia / Flytrap / RenegadeRadio, renegaderadio.com)
