The Ship by Country Teasers

Album Description

CURATOR:
Released:June 27th, 2006
Recorded:June 15th, 2006
GENRE:
Length:00:41:32
Label:WFMU
Engineer: Gil Shuster

London's masters of satirical, falling-apart misanthropy have arrived in Jersey City on the heels of their latest In the Red label release "The Empire Strikes Back." Live, their deconstructive take on experimental rock and American roots music incorporates enough observations on its misogyny, racism, and topical confusion to part their crowds like Moses. They've picked on the human race by covering both the Brainbombs and Randy Newman's "Short People", hell, they've even picked on each other in their songs. Pitchfork even gave one of their records a 3.2 out of 10 despite the fact these guys are heavily influenced by the Fall. This show was aired a few weeks back on Brian's Tuesday afternoon program but this morning we netcast it on the web only free of FCC restrictions. The band: Ben Wallers: Vocal, Guitar, Robert McNeill: Keyboard, 4-track, Guitar, Leighton Crook: Drums, Sophie Politowicz: Bass, Alastair Mackinven: Guitar. More on the Teasers here. Selections today: Prelude / The Ship / Points of View / Good Looking Boys Or Women / Trucking By / Hairy Wine 2 / Man V. Cock / Please Ban Music - Gegen Alles / It Is My Duty. Thanks to Gil and the Teasers! (http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/19693)
