Back in college I used to make tiny amounts of money reviewing records for a publication called Township Jive. I did enjoy writing non-positive reviews. I felt a little bad about it.
I reviewed a record by a band called Stump who had put out an LP called A Fierce Pancake. I don’t have a copy of the review but I said that no matter what college radio promoters were trying to tell you, the record sucked, in no uncertain terms. It was true that it was ground-breaking in terms of using instruments and samples in unusual ways, but it still sucked.
A friend of mine really liked this record and got mad at me for the review I wrote. I heard he said a lot of stuff about how I was a square which is probably true, especially depending on where you’re coming from.
But here’s a song from the record.
