This is Sigourney Reverb’s first record. They are from Ballard which is still in Seattle. This ain’t the Kinks and it ain’t X or the Pixies. It certainly ain’t no saintly T-Rex and it is ridiculously catchy and it is ketchup-raw and bloody but still deliciously sweet. But not as sweet as Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. Well, maybe not. Fourteen songs, twelve with hooks, thirty minutes and fifty-five seconds.
1. Eric is the “genius” of the band. He writes the tunes. He sings. He might yodel. He plays guitar through an ancient Sunn PA. Distorted. He thinks up taking pictures of the band in garbage sacks. He is pretty bald. He used to play in a weirdo band called The Cherubs and plays trumpet around town in Orkestar Zirkonium and other stuff.
2. Lori is the true rock star of the gang. She has actual guitar moves, unlike Eric’s spaznerd moves. She likes tank tops. Sometimes when she screeches at the top of her lungs it makes me think of Yoko in a much less arty way. Sometimes not.
3. Shawn is an enigma. Bass players should always be enigmas. The bass is purple. Like Prince.
4. Donny is the Hammer. When he is not playing drums, he collects scrap metal. Who doesn’t like scrap metal?
