Geeks, The – “Too Fat Pig / Visiting Day At San Quentin ” – [S-S Records]

Definitely a product of the time it was recorded, 1979-80.
Squakward improv music behind two different vocalists. On
the A-side, if you play it mistakenly at 33 rpm, it comes
across even eerier, but the then 15-year old vocalist Lydia
Kindheart gets morphed into a 37-year old whispery dude
named Ralph. Better to stick to 45 rpm. Poor pigs, always
a symbol for gluttony or the worst in man, if not in fact
“The Man.” On the flip side, it’s “Visiting Day at San
Quentin” we’re not in Oz anymore. No locked groove for
the lockdown, again kind of a sonic sprawl with the Mark
Chambers lyrics working to get all five fingers into a fist.
Ultimately a nice snapshot into folks making music for
themselves. -Thurston Hunger
