The Holder Uppers


Lets travel back in time to six months ago. I made a Clawhammer post, the reward all bloggers want was offered up on a plate. A simple comment. This album is their major label "sellout" and interestingly the head of Epitaph records was the producer even though the band had jumped ship from his label. Clawhammer didn't change their sound at all and this Captain Beefheart ain't really major label stuff. Hell, it definitely didn't fit the Epitaph whoah-whoah pop punk mould either. This post is scant because it's a week till Christmas and there's still gift shopping to do.

Merry Christmas

Sorry, can't do the re-up for Big Drill Car as I know from the band that they would prefer you got their MP3's from Itunes.

I disliked this record for awhile, but have come to appreciate it a lot more; i think the second half is when it really starts to cook.

A breathtaking band.
