Their first album, precociously title "We are Ever so Clean," is a goodun. I know Bob Pollard likes it. You probably like it too. But this is the one I choose. Not nearly as poppy as their opening salvo. Instead, Brian Godding & crew get almost Beefheartian on the opening track "Peace Loving Man." Not really my favorite title, but still a pretty fantastic song. In a time where most of the music I hear is this bullshit commercial (I mean on tv, not mainstream commercial) music that all seems to be song by the same woman--the one with that thin, reedy voice that makes the skin crawl--sometimes I just have to blast this and clean my brain.
