BETWEEN MEALS-OH NO I JUST KNOCKED OVER A CUP OF COFFEE, 12\" EP, 1984, USA MP3/Flac



Half Japanese founder and longterm subcultural fixture Jad Fair and his patented nasal naif savant stance is one that's cut both ways for me in the past, but over time it's become one that has systematically worn down my defenses and grown on me like some friendly fungus to the point where his so-wrong-it's-right histrionics now just seem like a friendly old tattered sweater to me. This curious (though not at all out of character) one-off agglomeration pits Fair against a decidedly curious consortium of left field cultural agents of the day, some of them not really known for their music making, like Duplex Planet publisher David Greenberger, some of them truly legendary for theirs, like Mo Tucker of The Velvet Underground; both of 'em working up a good head of garrulous goofiness and shambolic swagger here alongside famous producer Andy Paley (earlier a member of Modern Lovers/Sidewinders), Pep Lester associate Chuck Bell and Erik Lindgren of Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic and The Space Negros and all of it fronted (way out fronted, in some instances) by the twitching raw nerve of nerd hysteria that is Jad in the midst of an unfettered lip flap.
