BLOOD DRAINED COWS:: 13: CD

Heaping slops of psych-rock, trash punk, Leonard Cohenisms, lyrics that touch upon what goes on in one’s mind, semi-acoustic ramblings, and other assorted weirdness are mooshed together on a plate with a side of “Chupacabra Rock ‘n’ Roll.” A bizarre meal, indeed, but when one of the chefs responsible for this meal is Angry Samoan guitarist Greg Turner, the mess before you, as well as the cover of “Little Black Egg,” which was a staple of the Samoans’ set, makes complete sense. Is this the long-hoped-for answer to Back from Samoa? No, so get over it. Is it a good listen? Without a doubt.
