DAVID THOMAS & TWO PALE BOYS: 18 Monkeys on a Dead Man’s Chest: CD

…and, presumably, after said monkeys had been supplied with enough typewriters to randomly churn out the complete works of Shakespeare, they were given enough guitars, violins, trumpets, melodeons and musettes to emit this. Frankly, i still prefer Lancelot Link & The Evolution Revolution. BEST SONG: I’ll say “New Orleans Fuzz,” because i’m sure i at least listened all the way thru the first song. BEST SONG TITLE: “Nebraska Alcohol Abuse” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: At 5:19, “Sad Eyed Lowlands” is exactly six minutes shorter than Bob Dylan’s similarly horrific “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands.”
