From the Highlands of Scotland comes El Jugador. They are a four-piece alternative rock act with a twist of folk-hop, grunge pop and cow punk. This EP features Sir Fred's debut on the pedal steel guitar. The title cut "My Shoe Fell Off" sounds as if El Jugador took a lesson in staccato phrasing from XTC. The following track, "Beer Bottle Blues," could easily be mistaken for a Beck tune.
