Consumer Guide Reviews:

Frizzle Fry [Caroline, 1990]
Don Knotts Jr. joins the Minutemen ("Mr. Knowitall," "Spegetti Western") *

Pork Soda [Interscope, 1993]
quite possibly the strangest top-10 band ever, and good for them ("Bob," "DMV") **

Tales From the Punchbowl [Interscope, 1995]
modern teen horrors simplified--and funkified ("Wynonna's Big Brown Beaver," "On the Tweek Again") **
