DORY TOURETTE AND THE SKIRTHEADS: Rock Immortal: LP

Mar 17, 2008

The band was apparently a Mission staple in the early ‘90s (or at least that’s what the one sheet says.) Anyway, when I put Rock Immortal (featuring a future Future Virgin and recorded by Matty Luv) on the turntable, the last thing I was expecting was a filthy and horrendously catchy ‘50s rock record with the occasional nod to old (as in fifty years or so) country. I don’t know, consider Buddy Holly on crank with a gigantic, fake horse cock falling out of his pants and you’re on the right track. It’s tongue-in-cheek and almost offensively tuneful, but still, with songs like “I’m Too Young to Be a Pedophile,” “Sperm Comes out of My Eyes,” and “The Lord Said ‘Ejaculate,’” chances are good it’s probably not one you’re gonna want to play for your mom. Good record.
