LIKE NOAH'S ARC BUT THE ANIMALS ARE MADE OF PUKE

Against the odds, Rollin Hunt has a myspace. I saw Rollin and his band play last week, and Liam who was in Bird Names for a spell is on drums, and there is a tiny trumpet and a bass. I'm not sure Rollin is aware he is making outsider art; he's earnest and oblivious from what I gathered. I wish the song "the Pamphlet" would play in it's entirety, it's the only thing I have heard in a year that made me want to make a band, because he played it with the whole band singing back ups, the horn, a glut of reverb and it was kind of Daniel Johnston meets the Shirelles. "Lonely Night" is also genius stroke, also the line "I took out some gum / and began to chew" is what is missing from all songs previously written. Chewing gum in the wind while you watch yr neighbors make out is exactly what is missing from rock songs. New favorite local band, tied with Bird Names. Be advised!
