VARIOUS ARTISTS: Liquid Hamburger Training Pants: CD

Mar 19, 2002

Most of the stuff on this comp is lame indie rock/emo crap, but there are a few really good tracks to be found here. The full-on thrash of Sought After and the geekcore of Que Se Dice are definite highlights, but the real gems come courtesy of the genius that is Worm Quartet. Quirky, funny-as-hell songs and the track “Monotony” has got to be the most succinct point ever made about techno. Coming in a close second is Go Sushi, who’s the only acoustic group I’ve been able to stomach for decades. Maybe ‘cause they remind me a little of the Urinals. Those last two bands make this more than worthwhile.
