Album Review

Farquhar, JW – The Formal Female [Brainblobru]

sluggo   11/4/2009   12-inch, A Library

A self indulgent bedroom rock opera released on private press in 1973. Apparently Farquhar had something to get off his chest here. He’s just a wee bit bitter. The “formal” female of the era being his rally cry. He had just come off a ten year marriage and I guess the bitch fucked him over. At least he seems to think so. All of that ads up to not enough reason to make this album. I can take the bitterness but there is no excuse for boring uninspired tedium – which is most of what I hear here. I’m sure someone will find this a masterpiece, so give it a spin just be careful not to fall asleep.
