Album Review

Bar bands are like the violin. Almost all of the ones you hear are hack amateur squall that'll make you run screaming for the door, or at least another beer to dull the pain. But when it's done right? Well, that's when you suddenly get sycophantic titles like "songwriter" and "genius" attached to your four-bar guitar musings. Mark Curry has been fishing around for the "songwriter/genius" tag for a while. Of course, in these days of pop pap, it's easier to catch a blue whale while fly-fishing. After being corporately dismissed from Virgin Records, Curry ended up in Martha's Vineyard, where he got NOFX guitarist El Hefe (aka Aaron Abeyeta), Lemonheads guitarist Kenny Lyon on bass, and drummer Shawn Mitchell to lay down the backing for his all-or-nothing shot at Paul Westerberg greatness. He certainly sounds like the former Replacements' leader on the mournful "Sleep Quietly," but he also lays down a funky Anthony Kiedis vocal swagger on the verses for "Cut 'Em Up" and an almost Pink Floyd-esque Waters/Gilmour duotone on the sonically bleak "How Many Fools." With breakup and break-out lyrics like "I'm stepping outside the circle I'm in" on "Sleeps Quietly," Curry should be allowed on the same elevator as Richard Thompson or Jeff Buckley, even if that elevator goes only one direction, and that's emotionally down. Songwriters have to suffer, right?
