Synopsis

Album Description
By far the strangest music on Shimmy Disc. With the help of Davey Williams (Curlew), The Reverend sings songs of murder and perversion in a context that can only be referred to as surreal. Backed by a 50's style big band, his stripmine crooning is truly unique.
 

CD Reviews

Steal it if it's the only way you can get your paws on it!
Noah@aminographics.com the man | SAN FRAN! | 01/14/1999

"Oh, my friends, this is too good to pass up. You must possess it. The reverend Fred Lane spices up the scene with his own brand of home-brewed dementia. Imagine, if you will Tom Waits playing with Capitan Beefhart. Devo meets Fuel Injected. Now your beginning to get an idea. Buy it. Get it. Steal it. Posses it by any means necessary."

"I hold Jay Lee of Houston's KPFT and his repeated playings of "The French Toast Man" on the now-defunct 'Wake Up and Smell the Coffee' largely responsible for the dementia of many Houstonians now in their late twenties. This record is too surreal for most people; if you prefer more predictable, less random lyrics, you should pass. But, if you wish to propel yourself into a state of uninhibited lunacy, play this record first thing in the morning, every day, for three weeks. Your life is bound to change."
