Now by The Tubes
Released: Apr 2012
Not very hard rock until the loud prog jam near the end, The Tubes' 1977 album spends too much time on lounge-music jokes. Blues goof "Golden Boy," about tanning problems, falls flat; "Pound of Flesh," about a well-endowed weakling, comes close. But the Tubular ones are still ahead of their time, predating Axl Rose's high-flying warble in the cigarette-problems opener "Smoke (La Vie En Fumér)"; '80s Peter Gabriel in "I'm Just A Mess"; James Chance free-jazz punk in "Cathy's Clone"; even hip-hop turntablists in "God-Bird-Change," a fast fusion collage that winds up on an incredible bongo break.
