4 stars I don't think that this album has really been recorded in Poland. Before the postumous HARMSTRAPPED, it was the only official release of this Californian band. Compared to that, Live In Poland is more rocking and noisy but it maintain the ZAPPAesque feel for the whole record.

The humoristic vein permeates the whole album which in any case shows the high musical skills of the members. After the Intro, the first proper song "Fu*k, I'm RIchard Marx" reminds me to GonG for the signatures, but it's also punky in some heavier parts so that I also hear hints of GREEN JELLY...not so punk, really.

"The Net" reminds to the original English punk, like SEX PISTOLS, but it can remind to CARDIACS, too. I have to confess that even if I'm on a progressive website, I like the punk rock. It's funny how the first very sexually explicit song "Yellow Vulva" starts with a swing with the intermission of 50's pop. Another characteristic of this band: mixing various genres in the same song.. which in the final part touches metal, too.

"I Am an Attorney" is simply crazy. A hard rock song with a pop bluesy middle part. Those guys can really play every kind of music. Very enjoyable like all the album. In the final it quotes a famous disco song but I'm not an expert and I can't tell which one. It could even be Herbie Hancick, who knows?

"Heinz 57 and Cocaine" is another incredibly funny song touching a number of genres. Samba, metal, post-punk,80s pop...there's a bit of everything. Not easy to describe.

The following track is entitled "Sperm". It's a story about those little cells who "die in this receptacle". It's the longest song which features a very ZAPPAesque instrumental part.

"Ballad Of The Intergalactic Hitman Underwear Fetishist" is another song full of everything. How can a poor reviewer describe a song in which the singer goes from falsetto to growl? Again, it's exetremely weel played and arranged and even if the various parts can seems disconnected, each is verry good and in the end the song doesn't have changes happening suddenly, the transitions are smooth enough.

The closer is still in this vein, Another track scoring more than 7 minutes with a bit of everything inside. Following is a quote from its lyrics, just to give an idea:

"When I get a group of people together who have a similar desire to have their behavior altered by the chemical properties of alcohol, it soon becomes clear that we'll have fun together This fun includes moving and saying certain words, yes it does"

So I strongly suggest to pay a visit to bandcamp and download both this album and their postumous HARMSTRAPPED.
