Eddie the Rat
Lip-synching at Zero Gravity
Comfort Stand

How on earth do we do it? We get up every day amidst the chaos of the modern world, where we are exposed to so much warped, pointless crap that it twists up your insides.

And so it goes with music: there are only so many hours in the day, so how the hell do we decide what to listen to? I'm as open-minded as the next man, but to open myself up to something like Lip-synching at Zero Gravity is just asking to have my insides screwed up even more.

Okay, there are some pluses here: a few of the twelve tracks have some interesting noises on. However, what we have elsewhere is 'experimental' in the worst way: random, tuneless, stoned. It's not even satisfying in its completely pointless nature.

I'm sure there's something vaguely interesting going on, desperately trying to force its way out, but I've given it three or four listens and I can't stand it any more.

I did get an Eddie the Rat sticker and badge though, which is nice.
