Album Review
Reviewed 2003-06-11
Catchy and fun! Ersatz Audio and Adult. bring us another very similar electro-clash artist, but instead of the biting female vocals, we get a goofy guy singer who is after the silliness of Jon Spencer but without the sick shouts of James Brown. Even if you’re sick of so many doods riding the electro-clash bandwagon, this album is still a great addition to that guilty pleasure of a genre. Get drunk and dance dammit! Think also of the Bay Area’s very own Crack W.A.R. 4, 6, 1, 7

1. upbeat and hard, fuzzed out bass with chanting male vox.
2. upbeat farted out bassline w/ casio sounds + funny echoing voice.
3. great but typical bassline w/ claps and goofy wailing voice.
4. steady rock beat w/ claps and nice fuzzy bass. funny vox.
5. midtempo simple beat with synth noises. almost out.
6. great upbeat and dancy, noisy driving bassline. nice energy.
7. instrumental, nice synth work, catchy rhythms and sounds.
8. slower, dark and sloppy with drunken sounds.
9. hard driving bassline, silly jon spencer-esque voice.
10. slow instrumental, repetitive.
11. piano bassline, then opens into hard repetitive rhythm.
