The Tarkington table is a masterclass in skewed abstract pop music. the music The Residents would have made if they could play instruments.
Totally forgotten and overlooked , I can't describe the feelings I have in my dysfunctional brain when I play this LP, which is more often these days, and i'm trying not to mention the overused word,"genius".
The difficulty in creating unpredictable melodies is immense in these post everything times, post- the nu renaissance of the 1960's. Records like this may never be made again! Its effortless beauty brings tears to the eyes of someone regularly accused of being an android.....(mainly by a procession of boring girlfriends of the past).....emotions do lurk behind my dead eyes, and art like this does tap into them.
(anyway isn't anger an emotion?)
Am I going over the top about an ignored record from over 25 years ago?......er....No?
And this ain't their best album either!
