UZBEKS: Goggles & Flipflops: LP

Jan 19, 2012

First off, if you see a record with a cover this cool, you should just fucking buy it and not be poking around some fanzine for a review of it. I’m actually kind of pissed you’re reading this far, actually. But, since you’re up, I’m obliged to muse about things like how there’s a certain indescribable subliminal vibe to this record that suggests it might be sort of a pink, yellow, baby blue, and green Israeli 3-D Hypno Coin version of the first Flesh Eaters album, maybe, but, as things progressed, I was thinking that the irregular song constructions and the general physics of the music were more at sort of a funkless NoMeansNo, for whatever that’s worth ((and i do indeed have a blue book value in mind)). I think the main problem here is that the music doesn’t seem to mean much without the lyric sheet, and the lyrics are so Spartan—usually just a few lines per song—that I’m pretty much dying of boredom trying to read along. Still a keeper, just because of the cool packaging. Yes, i am that shallow, thanks. BEST SONG: “The Satanic Bible” BEST SONG TITLE: “Electro Man” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: I have, to date, owned three copies of the Electro-Man “Invasion from Outer Space” coloring book, based on the exploits of a superhero whom, to my knowledge, exists nowhere else but that coloring book.
