Records That Sound Nothing Like They Look
Soul On Ice, ca. 4/3/05:
Well, this is the thread!- I had mighty high hopes for "Mr. Penguin" by Lunar Funk on Bell...funk, it is...good, it is not. (Although I understand the followup, "Slip The Drummer One," is really good, judging by the needle swipe I heard at a friend's house.)- The Candymen's two albums on ABC...five mod-dressing guys on the cover, you expect it to be a lost Southern garage-rock classic...turns out its' limp pop-psych, and it's not even good for what it is! Add on...I would love to start a thread about 45's people bought where the title was like, "Funky Funking MotherFunker," on a usually good label, say, Sussex, and the artist's name was like, "Willie McSoul," and you get it home, hands shaking as you put it on the turntable, and it turns out to be bluegrass with kazoos!!
