GOOGOLPLEXIA / BUTT: Ass-Sick Creeps: Split 7”

Side A is a song called “Butt Release.” The lyrics are about the band on Side B. They go to jail, but are then released. Get it? It’s an up-tempo, toe tapper that you can dance to. Instruments played by Googolplexia include banjo and accordion. There’s even whistling! Mario Seaweed from Butt lends a hand on guitar and drums. Side B is a song called “Ass Disaster.” It’s a slower tune, driven by drums. Both female and male vocals tell the tale of the Pancake Master getting involved with donkeys (asses). Very humorous yarn. The end of each song flows into the beginning of the other song before being cut off. The never-ending flow probably sounds better on the MP3 version, which is downloadable. The cover art on each side is colored embroidery, done by Fishboy. In place of a lyric sheet, you get a comic interpretation for each song, drawn by Matt Harnish. Very well put together and well worth the price, whatever that is.
