MORNING SHAKES, THE: XXX-plode with the Sounds of Sex, Booze and Sin!: LP

Feb 28, 2008

...i’m not sure if it’s a testament to this defunct ‘90s outfit’s latent greatness or more of an indictment of today’s vendors of the Stinky Garage Molecule that a band which sounded “good” but not overly raveworthy six-seven years ago now comes off as substantially above average (“SUBSTANTIALLY ABOVE AVERAGE!” My devotion knows no bounds!) in most regards. Singles tracks, album tracks, the ever-popular “lost tracks” and some keen covers by a band who never met a New Bomb Turks song recorded in Billy Childish’s bedroom they didn’t like – i just hope when i die somebody can cobble together a package this useful out of my spare parts. BEST SONG: i got to go with the Dicks cover here, but if they would have thought to medley “Thunderbird ESQ” into “Stealing People’s Mail” i would say that. BEST SONG TITLE: “Devious Means,” outside authorship be hanged! FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: This is one of two Rockin’ Bones releases reviewed this month which sports a Zero Boys cover. Indianapolis: New Centre of the Universe!
