"But we knew that we couldn't
just go up there and look normal. So
we decided to be bald. Our girlfriend
who was a makeup artist got us caps
and makeup and we all were bald.
The crowd was a little stunned at
first, you know; their sense of humor
isn't quite like what ours is. It took
them a while, but then they just
started rocking out.
"At the end of the night someone
from the audience said that we were
a really good band and we didn't
need to use that gimmick, as if we
do that all the time. But it was pretty
funny. We've got some great pic-

What they do excel in, however,
is the three to four-minute rock song
which is sorely missing from their
latest album, May I Sing With Me.
Good songwriters they are, but not
in the style they've chosen to play.
"Mushroom Cloud of Hiss" and
"Sleeping Pill" are relentless in their
pursuit to agonize the listener. The
former song is held together with a
fast drumbeat and an overall fuzzi-
ness. The vocals remain secondary,
and the feedback at the end carries
on for what seems like an eternity.
The latter (and the name "Slee-
ping Pill" should give it away),
could easily put the worst insomniac
to sleep. The shimmering guitar
turns into feedback, and eventually
becomes an intimidating mass of dis-
tortion. Again, the song drags on

songs lacking in grunge are their

on the album, has an entertaining
vocal harmonization between the
duo. The straightforwardness of the

aim to annoy and confuse listeners,
they have once again succeeded ad-

back continuously to one question-
when it's all over - so what?
While many distortion-guitar
