Circus Devils – “My Mind Has Seen The White Trick” – [Happy Jack Rock Records]
Supposedly this album has a theme, and it’s probably just too esoteric for me to guess at it. But more likely I just want to forget any themes in order to say freely that with this one, Pollard hits it out of the park. The lyrics (printed on the sleeve so you can follow along) are darkly whimsical to me and match the rock operas presented in each of the tracks. The guitars and vocals are matchless, and the rock gets your toes and heels a-tapping. This is absolutely devilish if you love psych rock.
