Slow Poisoner, The – “Ever Been Chewed Upon By Teeth As Sharp As Knives?” – [Rocktopus!]
Just in time for Halloween, we are fortunate to add this entertaining release from San Francisco’s own favorite, The Slow Poisoner. Each song title is depicted on the back of the creature pictured on the CD sleeve, and you will enjoy listening to the tale of the car-driving worm, hypno-hog, screaming mandrake, and many others (13 to be exact). It’s rock with tambourine, guitar, fascinating lyrics by Andrew Goldfarb, and sometimes there’s even blues. The title track (11) is my favorite, but you decide for yourself.
