Isn't It Nice
These rocking Aussies are addicted to anxiety -- in fact, "Anxiety" is the opening title, and plainspoken Brendan Suppression spends subsequent panic attacks hiding in the corner at parties, apologizing to his better half, and coping with her manic depression. He repeats himself a lot, too. But the truly obsessive repetition happens in the rhythm, over which axe ace Eddy Current takes every-which-way solos that'd bring tears to Tom Verlaine's eyes. Finally, in the closing title cut, tribal drums lure you on holiday to the Melbourne beach, where the tide splashes ashore for 24 minutes.
