Flaming Day Of The Locusts
First off, what an awesome album title. Hopefully, somebody slipped a copy to Papa Jerry before he departed for the Dark Star. Released in 1994, Workingman's Dick contains recordings that date from the late '80s. This is rather astonishing, seeing as how the music -- however strange and psychedelic, which it most certainly is -- sounds like the birth of slowcore. Just about every stylistic touchstone is present: the creaky mantras, the half-spoken poetics, the somnambulant tempos, the sparsely plucked guitars. No idea if Low actually listened to Supreme Dicks, but it sure sounds like they did.
