Remora – “Scars Bring Hope” – [Silber Records]

“Remora” refers to a sucker fish that latches onto other fish such as sharks for transportation and uneaten leftovers. Why Brian John Mitchell of Raleigh, NC chose this name is a mystery, although several of the songs on this CD have sea references or sounds (7, 9, 12). Amidst the guitar/bass/piano/organ/drums/pipe/theremin/glockenspiel drone 6 stands out as an upbeat love song, 4 refers to a 1966 Western film, and 10 and 12 are instrumental. Lyrics are enclosed in case if you can read tiny printing, but Mitchell’s voice is fairly clear.

    Track 3 says “fuck” a bunch of times.

    The name Remora is because it is a word that brings up a vague familiarity of “I think I’ve heard that name before” & because everything I do is intentionally or unintentionally derivative to the works of others.
