ROBOCOP KRAUS, THE: They Think They Are: CD

Mar 12, 2007

I wish they would have called themselves “The Robocop Klaus Nomi,” then they’d all be dead of AIDS right now and i wouldn’t have to listen to this CD any more. BEST SONG: “You Don’t Need a Doctor” BEST SONG TITLE: “Life Amazes Us Despite Our Miserable Future” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Actually, this record is often interesting in an I.R.S. Records circa 1980 way, but, i mean, if you name your band something like The Robocop Kraus and you put out an album on friggin’ Epitaph that sounds like the singer of Gang Of Four emoting over some kind of rinky-dink Stereo Total background music, you kinda set yourself up for whatever wise-ass crap the reviewer deigns to fling your way.
