CPC GANGBANGS: The Broken Glass b/w Rich Rich Rich: 7” 45

Mar 17, 2008

I have absolutely no idea why this record would be any good whatsoever, which makes the fact that it is unexpectedly kinda good kinda baffling. Armed with cheese-ass hand-drawn lettering that eschews all curves ever concocted, this band has half the Confused Poseur Charisma of the Viletones and at least a third of the Tuned-Into-The-Grand-Cosmic-Something-Field perspicacity of the Dirtbombs ((albeit a Dirtbombs whose object of sonic slobber is not so much a reinforced-to-withstand-IEDs woofer as a one inch Sparkomatic™ tweeter)), and whyfore these ingredients should somehow be coerced to mesh into a respectably convincing sonic dictum of TENSION, DISTORTION, and ELECTRICITY is quite beyond the average Vulcan’s logic, which is why record reviews should only be written by Romulans anyway. BEST SONG: “The Broken Glass,” which name-drops Atlanta, Chicago, and Green Bay for no decipherable reason. BEST SONG TITLE “Rich Rich Rich.” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Ugliest picture disc ever. What the hell IS that, the inside of my mother’s eyelid???
