WORM QUARTET: Mental Notes: CD

Jan 07, 2008

Goofy in substance, techno/synth in style (they called it “industrial” music when I was in college, but I think the labels have changed—live, aggressive guitars, over-the-top keyboards, manic, programmed drums), Worm Quartet is a one-man band that straps spork references to drum machines. It’s either They Might Be Giants backed by Ministry or Weird Al recording for Wax Trax. With a Boris The Sprinkler cover (“Drugs and Masturbation”) to boot. The live track, “What Your Parents Think All Your Music Sounds Like,” shows that Tim “Shoebox” Crist is a funny guy who can work a crowd, but the balance of Mental Notes is more clever than enjoyable.
