PONG: Gone: CD

Seven tracks of smarty-pants funky rock in the vein of say, Gang Of Four meets Talking Heads. Nothing really sticks out from anything else other than the song “Fish Sauce,” which annoyed me and captivated me simultaneously. Any band that extols the virtues of fish sauce is ultimately okay in my book. Just don’t spill any on your pants, trust me.
