Perusing the liner notes, I saw that saxophone is featured on a couple of the tracks. I was hoping it would be the cool kinda sax you hear on records by the Sonics and the Mothballs. It ain’t. The guy plays the sax in much the same way Ferris Bueller plays the clarinet—“Never had one lesson!”—honking like dying goose. The guys are all dressed like the Strokes in the liner note pictures, but it seems like they may be trying to ape the Nation Of Ulysees, stylistically and musically, more than anyone else. As Rick Stratton might have said on long lost-but-not-forgotten sitcom, Silver Spoons: “This is bogus.”
