SOCK-TIGHT: Smudge: LP

Sock-Tight is the musical collaboration of thee Mike Watt and Raymond Pettibon, with guest appearances from folks like Steve Mackay, Jerry Trebotic, and Dirk Vandenberg. The results are a mixed bag. The musicians do their thing while Pettibon does his spiel over it. Ever wonder what some of his art with the heavy dialogs would sound like if they were laid down to music? Well, it kind of happens here. It’s kind of like a modern beatnik performance. I’m also reminded of what Calvin Johnson does with Dub Narcotic Sound. –Matt Average (Org, [email protected], orgmusic.com)
