DILETTANTES, THE: 101 Tambourines: CD

This CD is absolute shit. It’s Byrds/Jefferson Airplane wannabe psych garbage from the knucklehead who played tambourine for the sometimes inspired Anton Newcombe (AKA, the Brian Jonestown Massacre). Lyrically, this record is about sophisticated as Dee Dee Ramone’s rap album; musically it’s so uninspired, it makes The Jet sound like the Velvet fucking Underground. I wish I could destroy all copies of this CD. Fucking fuck. It has put me in a horrible mood, and I’m all crotchety enough as it is.
