SOCK-TIGHT: Smudge: LP

An all-star lineup of players familiar to anyone down with the San Pedro scene, with heavy hitters like Dirk Vandenberg from Tragicomedy, Jerry Trebotic from the Secondmen, and some dude named Steve MacKay from the Stooges laying down blorpy free jazz-y sounds with Mike Watt on bass and Ray Pettibon spielin’ on top. Unexpected turns abound, lyrical and otherwise. It sounds like everyone involved had a blast. Far out, man! –Michael T. Fournier (Org, orgmusic.com)
