When Einstürzende Neubauten Seems Twee . . .
I still have not been able to hook up the home computer, thanks to some unresponsive phone jacks, so in the meantime I will simply regale you with some song titles from what I can only assume is the most terrible band in history. Friends, I give you Anal Cunt.
Bonus message from Amazon: Auctions and zShops sellers and our other stores recommend:
Gosh, thanks! Those sound peachy!
1. Picnic of Love
Oh, poo! I thought these were angry lads, but look! They're very sweet! Oh, the poignancy of [Untitled]!
Bonus Amazon commenter: These are some of the most heartfelt ballads of any rock band I've ever heard, which includes the hits of Styx and Winger. Rock, On, A.C., and may Jesus our Saviour bless thee!!!
Hopefully after tomorrow night, when Qwest is finished violently boning me for repair fees, I can get back on a more reg'lar-type posting regimen.

AC's cover of "American Woman" is... it's just. You just gotta hear it.
Damnit, i beat me to mentioning the 'American Woman' thing. But he's right, you have to hear it.
I'm pretty sure I played a gig opening for AC in Massachussetts, once.
Picnic of Love is one of the most painful things to listen to, ever. Which of course was probably the goal.
They had another album with a song called "Tim Is Gay," and I bought it just to piss off my friend Tim. It worked. That CD also had "I Lit Your Baby On Fire" on it, and I still think that's a good song.
Are you sure that song isn't actually entitled "Rene Auberjonois Is Gay"?
I think you are going to start getting some even more disturbing search results.
The Anal Cunt song titles remind me of the kid who used to sit next to me in art class in high school and listen to G.G. Allin. Ah, good times, well except for the listening to G.G. Allin part.
Anal Cunt! Hooray! You've gotta love them, if only for the fact that they seem to have deliberately given themselves a name that will guarantee precisely zero radio play. Fuck the man! That's punk rock.
i actully kinda like them. it's just a matter of approaching it with a sense of humor, i guess. and yes, they did the best cover of 'american woman' ever.
At least they know how long their songs should be.
(very very short)
Hey, I know Tim. And let's not forget AC's Oi cover of the BeeGees. That's right: "Oi, Oi, Oi, Oi, staying alive, staying alive." Or their cover of Eddy Grant's "Electric Avenue." Good times.
Oh, they ain't got _shit_ on The Locust's titles, man. These are fuckin' punk. Or indecipherable drivel. Yeah, the latter.

No, you don't understand, "Branscombe Richmond" is a totally cool song title because he's the actor who plays the "native american" sidekick on the unforgettable Lorenzo Lamas TV show "Renegade." So, you see, it's hilarious is an unlaughing, post-modernic, ironic way. And please don't ask me how I know this.
