WARNIING: Explicit Lyrics
Track 1 -"True Love Is A Dope Whore" - 'whore,' murder lyrics.
Track 5 - "Broken Toy" - 'whore, faggot, fucked up'
Track 8 - "Got Cleaned Up" - 'shit'
This record steps out from behind a tattered shade like a hooker hanging her plump thigh over the crowd below. As each succeeding side is thrust out — shamelessly or with passing modesty — the grime in the pavement starts to hiss and sizzle with anticipation. By the second cut, you're in, swanking like a pimp from the corner of Tulane to the fringes of the quarter. To say these sounds jive with the spirit of the crescent city goes way beyond some collection of strolls and 2nd line retro kitsch. This album plays both sides of the coin creating a third in the process. In the box, out the box, kick a hole in the box. If artistic freedom has shit to do with the big easy being a global music center, it's between your hands right now.
Fans know to check expectations at the door.
So sit back, slip out of everything and take a pull off what ails ya. But be careful, this plate of hot mess is bound to arouse. Whether you desire to control the vigor of steam, harness the lightning for hire or drive the celestial team, let the high gods witness at length - you've been approved by snakes.
- Paul Linden
