Moustache Of Insanity - Moustache Of Insanity

The Moustache Of Insanity debut album starts with Living Room Picnic, a tune that almost succeeds despite itself. It has god awful out of tune vocals, but an endearing plinky plonk tune. Apparently when they tried to record this their neighbour complained, the band wonder why when it’s not exactly speed metal, but I think the above may answer their question. The brief The Ultimate Uno Championship Winning Song has a touch of Bobby McGees to it, before they hit form on I Won! I Did It! I’m The Winner, which in a none more twee way extolling the virtues of winning, even when it’s against someone who doesn’t even know how to play. The giggle and the childish taunt at the end sum it up. Email is a ramshackle and knock kneed Ballboy, rather sweet indeed, while No Bills Club fizzes along, with a snarl on its lo fi lip. Possibly the most fun track is Broken Biscuits, about what I know not, but I’m guessing about growing old as a couple. Maybe.

Yay! Our first bad-ish review! "god awful out of tune vocals"! Really? I thought I did alright. You should hear the version that's on the Indietracks compilation. Eeek!

Anyway, reading it again it's not all I'm happy you seem to have gotten some enjoyment out of it all!

Back to practising those vocal skills :)

Take care,

Nik (Moustache of Insanity)
