CREOSOTE: Life Lessons: 7"

May 26, 2008

Skip right to the second side of this crusty piece of wax. There, you’ll hear one of the most intriguing guitar sounds ever placed in this type of tune. Do you know those little door stops that are springs with a little piece of rubber on them? You know that sound they make when you accidentally hit one with your foot? That rad vibrating sound? Well, if that sound came rumbling out of a guitar, that would be what the opening riffs of the song “More than a Drinking Buddy” came from. After you listen to that part, though, you might want to turn it off, unless you’re into female vocals that sound sort of like a little girl showing up to church a day early for choir practice and deciding she should sing alone, all weak and off pitch.
