MORON’S MORONS: High-Tension Situation: LP

May 15, 2023

Hailing from Warsaw, Poland, where they certainly know a thing or two about morons (FULL DISCLOSURE: According to popular genealogy websites, the majority of my ancestry can be traced back to the Warsaw area, so cut me a break here), the Mo’s (as the Hip Folk call them) (actually, no one calls them this) combine the aggressive tinniness of the Zero Boys with the nasty and at least semi-psychotic edge of The Consumers, all of which serves as the vehicle for a somewhat dated Panic Beats-esque lyrical thrust about killing this, that, and the other thing. I’d throw in a Tales Of Terror reference somewhere but I can’t figure out where to fit it in. If you’re at the stage of your life where adrenaline-fueled id-stroking by sassy drunks still gets you off, you could certainly do worse that this ripper. I, however, find myself slightly confused by lyrics like “gonna fuck your mom and shoot your dad / Like Picasso of genocide and bloodshed.” Wouldn’t that be more of a Jackson Pollock thing? And wouldn’t Guernica suggest that Picasso himself was the Picasso of genocide and bloodshed? That’s the problem with calling your band “Moron’s Morons,” nobody ever asks you the tough questions about art history. Maybe they can change their name to “Mormon’s Mormons” and write their next album about magic underwear. Evil, but a hoot. BEST SONG: “Free-Time Crimes.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Psychosis Diagnosis.” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: “Artwork by a moron.” –Rev. Nørb (Sweet Time, sweettimerecords.com)
