SHARK INFERNO: We Are Monsters: CD

May 21, 2014

This band accidentally made a grunge record, and not a particularly good one. Even if you spent the early ‘90s worshipping bands from the Pacific Northwest and wearing the same flannel shirt every day until your armpits smelled like a pile of dead rats, you still might not be able to get into songs like “Stems,” which features this little dab of poetry: “Her stems are long and fine. They really blow my mind. Caress them through the night. They make me feel alright.” On the other hand, there’s a nice tribute to Edie Sedgwick, and I can get behind that, even if it’s kind of awful. Also, despite what the run time says, I’m pretty sure this CD is one million painful minutes long.
