COKIE THE CLOWN: You’re Welcome: CD

Aug 01, 2019

I kind of hate that I have to listen to Fat Mike’s midlife crisis. I have made an effort thus far to avoid this persona since it first appeared a few years back, but here we are. Cokie is Mike writing songs about his most soul-crushing sadness with minimalist accompaniment. It isn’t bad music at all. In fact, Mike is a good songwriter, but this is simply excruciating to listen to. Piling his sadness on top of my own is almost too much to handle. I feel empty now. I was caught unprepared when the song about Naja came on (“The Queen Is Dead”). I teared up. Mission accomplished? –Ty Stranglehold (Fat)
