The Dead Milkmen - Smokin' Banana Peels!
The Dead Milkmen - Smokin' Banana Peels
For some reason, they thought it would be a good idea to have Was/Not Was do a bunch of boring dance remixes of "Smokin' Banana Peels." It wasn't. Side two's good, though; it's a re-recording of five songs from their extinct demo tape, Death Rides A Pale Cow. They're gross, childish, morbid, idiotic, and you know? Awfully CATCHY!!! Could someone please find me a synonym???? Cereally, it's just awfully entertaining to hear bouncy happy music that makes you tap your foot and snap your ring finger until you suddenly realize that you're listening to "I Hate Myself" - or, better yet, "Death's Alright With Me." Yeah, I know I criticized them earlier for joking about death too much, but this is a suicide song, and that's a different matter altogether. And "The Puking Song" - oh, that's a cute one.... (~Mark Prindle)
This EP contains four new remixes of the title track, which originally appeared on Beelzebubba, but if you can wade through those, the second side is prime snotty, juvenile Milkmen. "The Puking Song" is probably the grossest song they ever recorded, so if you like their sense of humor, this one is worth it for that track alone. (~Steve Huey @AllMusic)
At least you don’t have to have a bucket nearby. (~Stacey Pavlick @spectrumculture)
Les Milkmen enfoncent le clou rouillé (ou la banane du Velvet dandy mariole) deux ans après le "Instant Club Hit", pour nous balancer du remix à gogo sur "Smokin Banana Peels", de quoi finir d’aseptiser le dancefloor dans des boîtes de nuit toujours plus meurtrières... Putain mais c'est vrai que ce son 'prêt-à-danser' donne envie de tuer, merci les mecs!
"I Hate Myself" est un carton plein presque métaphysique, tandis que "Girl Hunt" te fera trouver l'amour rêvé... et que "Death's Alright With Me" abordera ou sabordera ton suicide. Tu chanteras avec les Milkmen avant même de t'en rendre compte, c'est garanti. Sois béni des dieux!
On sera d'accord que 5 morceaux excellents sur un EP ça le fait grave, tout le reste est pardonné. Amen.
Same Rip specs as usual, now talk to me about Elvis!
