ALMIGHTY HANDCLAPS, THEE: Make You Mine: 7″ EP

Sounds like what the Mummies would have sounded like if, instead of being real humans (or Russell Quan units) merely wrapped in Ace™ bandages, they were actual corpses from EC Comics that somehow gained life of their own and chose to try to sound like the Mummies trying to sound like the Sonics trying to play “Sixteen Tons” by Tennessee Ernie Ford. I got the fear, but didn’t really hear any handclaps. BEST SONG: “Full-Time!” BEST SONG TITLE: “The Handclap Shake” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: I would have incorporated Thee Almighty Handclaps data on “shaking” into my column this issue had I actually understood any lyrics other than “shake.”
