Consumer Guide Reviews:

Ranch Is the New French [Buildgut, 2006]
Wage servitude and the righteous haters who are stuck in it--the lowdown ("The Drudge," "Wonderful Waitress," "Cook and Clean"). ***

Limited Coverage [Sauspop, 2008]
A little night music about too many day jobs ("They Fired Me," "Have to Go to Work"). **

Keep the Babies Warm [Sauspop, 2008]
They didn't predict the crash--too busy. ("Liquid Meat [Into a Form]," "Keep the Babies Warm"). *
