Album Review

Performing Ferrets – “Messthetics #216 No One Told Us ” – [Hyped 2 Death]

humana   9/3/2008   A Library, CD

DIY rock: A compilation of quirky, humorous, and fun songs from the Performing Ferrets, a UK band made up of kids whose music is reminiscent of the Talking Heads. They???ve evolved since 1976 when they were fooling around with a harmonica, a Bontempi organ, reel-to-reel recorder, kazoo, broken tambourine and an empty mandolin-case drum. In addition to the ???lack of finesse in these performances that make them all the more enchanting,??? there are some killer guitar and drums on here. Definitely catchy, definitely worth playing. How can you resist lyrics like ???I believe in Aquafresh??? (15)? Enjoy. PGM: FCC on 20; there???s very little space between some tracks. Times and favorites are marked on back cover of liner notes (which are entertaining and illuminative in and of themselves).
