"I've been a big Alice Donut fan ever since '88 when I heard "Lisa's Father", the first song they recorded. I agree that Mule and Bucketfulls of... are two of their best, but I prefer their first album, Donut Comes Alive to Untidy Suicides. Mule shows off a group of really twisted human beings both relaxed enough and focused enough to let us in on what really goes on in their heads. Just listen to a bunch of samples and see if it grows on you. It may be incurable, but the thought police probably won't notice."
The Best Band You Never Heard In Your Life

"MOST people haven't heard of Alice Donut EVER. I happened onto them quite by accident, but what a great accident! They're gone now, off to that Great-Bands-That-Nobody-Ever-Heard-Of Record Store in the Sky...but hey, they left all this great music! Bucketfulls of Sickness, Mule and Untidy Suicides are the three essential albums, start from there. Enjoy!"
For a change, a REAL alternative to the mainstream!

"Tomas and the gang really rocked out on this early release. Personal faves "Bottom Of The Chain", "Roadkill", "Mother of Christ", and "Roaches in the Sink" show just how dangerous rock-n-roll could be with the Donut at the helm. Plus, when Donut does a cover tune, they plant tongue firmly in cheek and make it their own. Comical case in point: "My Boyfriend's Back." Alice Donut was criminally unrecognized during their day but hopefully keeping their titles in print will keep some of the most sincere alternative rock alive. If you really do want an alternative to the mainstream, the Donut won't disappoint."
