VELCRO LEWIS AND HIS 100 PROOF BAND: Ruin Everything: CD

This CD is the aural equivalent of waking up one booze-doomed morning, and exulting in the fact that you have just slept with a member of Nashville Pussy, but having said exultation be quickly tempered by the fact that it was Blaine (if, of course, Blaine was from Chicago and everybody else in the band was also Blaine, and also from Chicago). I can explain things no better than Jake Austen’s liner notes: “The punctuation on ‘Rockin’ & Drinkin’ (Tonight)’ is testament alone to this band’s greatness. With such a title one need not even listen to the song to appreciate its magnificence, and perhaps one shouldn’t.” BEST SONG: “Covert Lover/Secret Sin” BEST SONG TITLE: “Rockin’ & Drinkin’ (Tonight)” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Liner notes thank Jim Knipfel, whom i was in Cub Scouts with.
