Foamola: May I Take a Bath? [Foamola, 1992]
There's too much art project in this five-song cassette, but fanzines hype slighter, dumber, more received stuff as if it were their holy mission, so why shouldn't I express myself? A married couple blow (flute, ocarina) and beat (chopsticks, coffee spoon, plastic fork). A buddy lays down some organ. The encomium to John Quincy Adams and the comparison of Texas and Tennessee are equally fanciful and equally educational. "Waiting for the Catfood To Come" is an East Village "Afternoon Delight." The weather report gets boring. And now I hear a one-year-old has joined the act.
