PATRICK DONOHUE: Straight from the Dragon’s Mouth: CD

A primitive nine-song solo project with no attempt to hide its amateur nature. The packaging consists of a xeroxed booklet and a CD-R with crude scribblings upon its surface. Lyrically, I heard a lot about ghosts and dragons which is okay in my book. The songs themselves are as unpolished as they are forgettable. I can hear similarities to the crude, early four-track works of masters such as Ween or Guided By Voices, but this is lacking the wry brilliance of those acts.
