Nixon's Head - Gormet - 1998


A 14-song collection that sounds as influenced by AM radio as it is by quirk-ish pop of the late 70s (Undertones!!)! A refreshing blend of influences...sort of adult bubblegum combined w/some of the more widely appealing zaniness of LMNOP or R. Stevie Moore and vocals JUST like Ian North (Milk `n Cookies). This fuzzy pop fizzles its way inexorably, charming you w/its lack of pretension or concern with impressing any particular genre-based music crowd--mines an iconoclasic mix of `67-era AM pop and `79 era punk. It certainly casts a wide net. While the producion values won`t blow any away, it`s far from low-fi and it`s all clear and clean sonically. A real grower, too! -Not Lame

If you like "Gormet" get it here!
