SINGAPORE SLING: Life Is Killing My Rock’n’Roll: CD

Jul 12, 2007

MOM, THE KIDS ARE MAKING THEIR OWN JESUS & MARY CHAIN ALBUMS AFTER YOU LEAVE FOR WORK IN THE MORNING!!! What’s next, reusable maxi-pads??? Oh... wait... never mind. These songs sound virtually identical to what i remember the songs that weren’t “Sidewalking” on that sort of odds-and-ends J&MC album sounding like, but i lent that cassette to a girl in about 1988 and never got it back, so i’m kinda going on dim recollections and foggy notions here—be that as it may, i can state with reasonable assurance that this would be about the third-or-fourth best Jesus & Mary Chain album, were it, in fact, an album by the Jesus & Mary Chain. The most fun you can have with Iceland-related items without intentionally pronouncing the silent j’s! BEST SONG: “Life Is Killing My Rock’n’Roll” BEST SONG TITLE: “Curse Curse Curse” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: And, on tambourine and maracas, it’s Iggi Sniff!
