Consumer Guide Album

Fred Schneider & the Shake Society: Fred Schneider & the Shake Society [Warner Bros., 1984]
"Summer in Hell," about the ultimate in endless parties, and "Monster," about Fred's penis, might have made the next B-52's album a great one. "It's Time to Kiss," with Patti LaBelle raring to go, probably wouldn't fit, but that doesn't go for such lesser tracks as "Orbit" and "This Planet's a Mess," both of which could use a shot of Cindy & Kate. Ahh, self-expression. B
