"A way of conveying the 'inside' conversation we think - through music and lyrics. The honesty of two girls projecting these thoughts to the sound of piano, bass, guitar, and drums." - from liner notes.
This is the one that started it all. After years of collecting rock, punk, industrial, jazz, and other "cool" music, I stepped in to the record store that fateful day, thumbed thru the dollar bin looking for cheap psych, and there it was. Vaguely trippy cover art showing 2 groovy chicks locked in lesbian eye-embrace with a greasy-haired schlump staring menacingly in the background. The song titles seemed weird and intriguing. Doctor Man ? Yesterday the Dog ?!? I paid my 99 cents, took it home, and found it wasn't "rock", but a swinging 60's hybrid of jazzy pop swankadelia with bizarre psychotherapy-inspired lyrics. A masterpiece of incredibly strange music.
