Changin' strings, bangin' on things
Amazing, amazing album, even if Butch doesn't look on it positively. Little trivia note: Matt Mahaffey, who did some production work, is the mastermind behind the band sElf, who I have been a fan of even longer than Butch. LIke BW, MM also does production work in the industry. He is an amazing musician and people should check him out, though his style is different than BW. Check out Self's albums: Subliminal Plastic Motives, Breakfast with girls, and Gizmodgery (all toy instrument).
anyhow, great review. This was the point (2002) where I became a huge BW fan and started going to a lot of his shows, met him a bunch, etc. This is the album that really made Butch my all-time favorite, even more so than Hey Album & ReadySexGo.
