Kreamy ‘lectric Santa – “Da Bronx Sity Chikn Machine Vol 2” – [Starcrunch]

Originally released around 1995, Da Bronx Sity Chiken Machine is available again. Listening to this album was my first KLS experience. They are defintely all over the place. The short tracks jump from fast paced punk rock to slowed down sugary pop, all noisy and experimental. Vocals tetter back and forth between Robert Price and Priya Ray. Most tracks are pretty short, so one could definitely play a few tracks continously. The tracks are squeezed together so tightly the whole album feels like one long track to me. Tracks 25 & 26 are of elementary school kids reciting parts from Hamlet. Althought I first thought they were stoners taking bong hits in between words. They giggle and insert their own commentary. It’s pretty entertaining.

I think it was Macbeth, not Hamlet - a lot of talk about King Duncan.
