ROMAN CANDLES: Last Exit to Berkeley: Cassette

Mr. Candles (a.k.a Christopher Gordon) says, “these songs are mostly about graduating from college and not wanting to.” His songs tend to have the same level of self-effacing modesty as that introduction, which is their charm. A little more life experience should make Mr. Candles a pretty solid lyricist. I hope that doesn’t sound condescending, because these songs are clever, humorous, and charming. Also, check out Mr. Cand… er…Christoher’s zine The Stowaways.
