This is the Drool Brothers' exciting new 2004 full-length follow up to their critically acclaimed debut. The Drool Brothers are Chuck Mancillas and Tom Slik (real brothers) and friend Joe Kramer. They experiment with recording and somehow fuse garage funk, retro-soul, and power pop into a psychedelic collage of humor and irony. This record features spoken passages in Urdo, a guest appearance by a legendary punker and a forced appearance by Chuck and Tom's mother, Sally. A truly original dose of many musical styles and influences, wrapped inside a humor-filled package that make a really beguiling and irresistibly, captivating release. It`s hard to pin down general references as each song has a different launching pad but you`ll hear such oddities as Captain Beefheart/Zappa playing with CCR and The Neville Brothers on the same night. Others remind me of Adrian Belew, Not Lame faves The Irresponsible and The Montgomerys, as well as Barenaked Ladies, Camper Van Beethoven and The Flaming Lips. Like we hinted at....eclectic, but oh so very cool! DELUSIONS OF ADEQUACY.
"This eclectic album is done with a lyrical approach that exemplifies the ironies and vulnerabilities of people with a laugh. Their sound is one all their own." - IMPACT PRESS
