There’s major work going on behind the doors of American in London at the moment (mostly healing from a never-ending chest infection). Things will resume as normal in a few weeks. Until then, try watering your Suburban Lawns.
This Long Beach band are constantly flying under the radar. While they’ve been on mine for a few years now, I find that people glaze over the band pretty frequently. This is especially strange considering it was released on the well-respected I.R.S. records. It’s a shame about the memory loss because their album is completely weird and arty, but still incredibly easy to digest. Su Tissue and her band of men with equally-bizarre nick names made a cool bit a music that deserves a bit more time.
Also, Su Tissue appears in Jonathan Demme’s Something Wild, which is a pretty cool little film with an even better soundtrack.
