that's probably my favorite record right now. sounds
very little like jandek, but is similar in the way it
is completely divorced from everything-- completely of
the deep end. sick, scary, funny, smart and stupid,
all at once. 

lyrics are downright creepy: "as the grossness of
spring/lolls a head against the window/rose a tumor
balloon/to squeak against the window" or "six feet of
fetus/flung at sparrows in the sky". and what's with
the insane donald duck/"new york ripper" quacking
vocals near the end?? 

i don't normally look at indie rock mags, but i
thumbed thru the new ish of Magnet for the scott
walker interview. really insightful.
