Shame for me for being so completely oblivious to Kent, OH's Indian Rope Burn when they were still roaming the land some twenty years ago. This three-songer is my first, and thus far only encounter with IRB, who were a trio at the time of this release. Slightly askew, but driving pop/rock, informed by gobs of college radio dispatches circa the late '80s. The vocals are largely monotone, but then again so were Nico's and we loved her, right? In addition to this wax there were three IRB cds, and from what little I was able to glean online, they took more of an industrial tack later in the career, but I can't say those inclinations crop up here. Enjoy (or not).
