MP3 Worm Quartet - Mental Notes

High speed punk-inspired synth rock with ridiculous and often surprisingly insightful comedy lyrics guaranteed to give your brain a wedgie and launch your nipples into orbit.

Smashing words and concepts together in the mosh-pit of despair is an enormous amount of fun, but a little goes a long way and Shoe... er, ShoEboX properly limits examples to just as much as we can stand. The remarkable thing is that all the logorrhea are so different from each other. In this case, Adventures In Creative Nostril-Swallowing (A Tribute To Plants That Suck):

Are you gargling your xylophone at the masturbating burrito parade?
Oh no! This paste is NEAT!
The poodle of harm
is destroying your arm
while the toastlord chisels
panties into clich├ęs.

Rhyme! Meter! Poetry! Ogden Nash would be proud (though probably a bit disgusted).

Further, I detect the semi-subtle influence of the great Luke Ski on several tracks (and he capitalizes the name properly). A few times, some of the lyrics were more than dysfunctional words playing in the same psychodrama, they were actual pop references in the tgLS mode of summing up an opus and extracting relevance to the song. Consider this snippet from I''m Not A Girl:

I''m not a girl (I''m not a girl)
I''m not a girl (I''m not a girl)
I''m bitchy but it isn''t PMS
Not a teardrop did I show, when they drowned DiCaprio
I was still thinking ''bout Kate Winslet''s breasts

More than just expert vocabulary-scarring, this demonstrates an understanding of the art.

I very much enjoyed the a cappella rendition of You Will Go To The Moon, the paean to his wife''s naughty bits in I''ve Got A Wife and Ed Meese. Even the outtakes in the hidden cut were fun.

The album artwork by Andy Hopp is splendid. I like the visual puns front and back, and the notepad theme inside. Many of the Dementia artists have learned a trick or two about marketing.

Mental Notes is R-rated for language, but nothing a kid in High School hasn''t heard from their parents. Highly recommended, whether this is your first Worm Quartet CD and want to check out why Dr. Demento plays his stuff all the time or whether you have his other CDs and want to add to your collection.
