ROOFIE AND THE NIGHTSTALKER: “G.H.B.” b/w “Total Dementia”: 7"

Nov 16, 2010

I miss the Orphans. I have an almost romantic empty spot in my heart of seeing Jenny Angelillo rolling around on the ground of dirty bar floors on a regular basis for a couple of years. When she wasn’t doing the grimy squirm, she was just the nicest lady. Lady. This is the first I’ve heard, musically, of Jenny in a bit. RATN’s music that sounds like high heels made out of switchblades and lipstick laced with very pleasing, melty drugs. Think Top Ten and Tina And The Total Babes but with a couple of dudes with beards (a fine indicator that this isn’t a Rip Off release). The B-side squalls and damages pitch perfect, like “You puke in my purse, you’ll wake up with broken fingernails in your cheek” perfect. I wonder if the bassist’s cabinet is covered with old women porn…
