A radical sonic experiment in which Rex bassist Phil Spirito and violinist Julie Liu collaborate with various members of Red Red Meat, throwing everything AND the kitchen sink ("For Lack of Better Words" even lists Ben Massarella on something called "Toilet Percussion") out in a daring attempt to create something completely different. It's an admirable creative experiment, but one that doesn't always coalesce. With a number of unusual instruments (55-gallon drum, toy piano, balalaika, and brick wall percussion among them), sometimes all being played simultaneously, the songs occasionally devolve into deconstructionist noise that proves nearly as difficult to listen to as it was obviously fun to make. An intriguing effort that places creativity over commerce, this album is recommended for extremely adventurous listeners only.
This is a chicago based ever revolving group of musicians particularly lead by Phil Spirito who is the primary leader of this music....At first i didnt know what to expect.. a very close friend of mine told me that the this alnum might be of interest to my ears so i gave it a try not ever hearing of these guys before( not that it should matter at all)....and i must say i was overwhelmed by the originality of it...the mixing pot of strings and primitive drums and just the right amount of electronic feedback puts this portrait of music in a very peculiar headspace that i must say is a very joyous one.....its very adventurous on the ears but with the right openness will you be startled by the subtleties in the compositions and just how they build up to a lovable notion of just pure sound...great stuff man....very creative...really recommended to anyone who is just open about music and talent.....my favorites have to be spiders house, tea eggs, stretch your money, firemans cough, bubble lady, and all of it...listen and spread your head

I picked this album up 15 years ago from a dollar bin at a southwest Ohio college town indie record shop. It remains, to this day, one of the most original and enveloping albums I have ever had the pleasure of ear-holing. A syrupy-slick dirt-leg dirge through an anthropomorphized psychic garbage-scape of ick. I love this album. It makes the millennium-bred flatulated pop-culture writhe in self pity and loathing. Yummy.
