FARCES WANNA MO: If Not Why Not?: CD

Serious nerd-out from 29 Palms, CA. First track: “Grammarchy,” a discourse on language to the tune of “Anarchy in the UK” (barely). Others include “Who’s Got Time to Build Infrastructure?”, “Here is a Cake,” “Bela Lugosi Loves Honky-Tonkin’” and “If the Egges Don’t Cooke.” It’s a huge mess of samples, talking, countless musical styles, and goofy nuttiness. Brings to mind the stuff on Eerie Materials, a label that put out scads of weird homemade weirdness (is it still around?), or maybe a Negativland-obsessed Sockeye. Must get pretty boring out there in the desert. (Incidentally, I saw another Farces Wanna Mo CD at the Children’s Hospital thrift store yesterday. I didn’t buy it.)
