DISCO FOR FERNS, A: Look Who’s Laughing: CD

I try to tell myself that behind every horrendous piece of music I hear there are real people who may have been passionate and well-intentioned about the slop they ended up putting together. A Disco For Ferns is probably not a bunch of kids who hastily tossed this crapfest together to impress their friends. They’re probably people who really put their hearts into this music, intending to put together something meaningful. It’s just a matter of coincidence that the fifteen minutes worth of music that came out sounds like a bunch of four-year-olds screaming and growling into a tape recorder while their older brothers pretend to play real instruments. Unfortunately, I don’t review intentions.
