CHILD BITE: The Living Breathing Organ Summer: CD

The band hits off-kilter grooves and spazzes out over them with guitars, keys, and carnival barker chants. But the one-sheet ruined it for me. They say they sound like The Birthday Party. All I hear is fake deep vocals. They say they sound like Devo. I hear a band playing with corncobs up their asses. In defense of the one sheet, it helped me decipher the band name and album title, which are written in script that made the CD look like “The Live Wing & Creativing Orgasm Liniment” by Wild & Te. Still, the overall effect is cool and theatrical and since they list about a hundred auxiliary members, I bet their stage show is a spectacle.
