An Eluardian Instance
Label: Polyvinyl Records
Prepare to step into the mad and depraved psyche of man-turned-woman-turned-man-again Georgie Fruit, Kevin Barnes' glammed-out alter ego. Introduced on 2007's Hissing Fauna, this character is in full schizophrenic force on Skeletal Lamping. If you think you're completely sexually desensitized, here's a chance to be shocked. Countless song snippets and graphic fantasies are nipped and tucked into a total of fifteen tracks that jolt through a disco-funk-rock orgy of frisky rhythms a la Queen, Prince, Scissor Sisters, Bee Gees, Ween, Beck, David Bowie, even the Strokes.
