jeeks introduced us. we used to rent his movies, or trade his albums. his music fueled a number of our high school collaborations, and since seventh or eighth grade lended our school-view a much needed authoritative cyncism and absurdistry.
to hear his brand of brilliance, listen to uncle meat or hot ratshot rats is one of my favourites.
apostrophe/overnight sensation is good but vocal-heavy
listen to "king kong" offa uncle meat, and tell me something wonderful isn't happening there.
now sometimes he's deliberately tweakin' with you,
like when he's talkin' about eatin' the yellow snow
he's quite clearly his own person, and so expect to take him with both edges and soft parts -
