Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-04-14
Strange anti-rock, live recording of one-man freakout. Wesley Willis meets Jethro Tull in the local psycho ward. Sounds like pre-programmed drums with him bashing out on fuzz bass or guitar, flute, with his omnipresent bizzarre vocals, sung like that of a fucking retard on crystal meth. Bordering on "Outsider Music", but also on the genius of Culturcide, The Residents, Killdozer, or even Zappa-like. If you think this sucks, well, you are certainly entitled to your opinion in this instance. I just love how its obvious theres like 5 people in the audience while this guy gives the performance of his life. It just does'nt get any better.

1) upbeat, rock, noise guitar/bass
2) upbeat surf rock beat buried by messed upness
3) tie me kangaroo down cover, with insane bongo playing and vocals, fucking truly crazy, an ode to the complexities of brain chemistry, and how truly fragile it can be
4) plodding along craziness
5) uh oh, his trademark flute FINALLY appears, "bonkey on the donkey"...brilliant
