ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Flock of Doug's Doug Utter is a witty satirist
with a taste for burlesque and a bag full of hooks." (City Pages, Minneapolis A-List)

The songs on "Wish I Were Here" are long on melody and texture, and short on pretense. Matt Shimmer of Indieville says the hooks are "occasionally excellent" and the "clever, pop-culture-heavy lyrics ... provide another level of entertainment."

ALL SONGS ARE SAMPLED. DIG IT, BUY IT, DIG IT SOME MORE, BUY IT AGAIN. REPEAT AD NAUSEUM OR UNTIL BREATHING STOPS.

Parental Warning: Some of the side effects you and your child can expect to experience while listening to "Wish I Were Here" are: dizziness, shortness of breath, pain while peeing, and hair growth on palms and probably between toes. These symptoms are a small price to pay when measured against the HOURS AND HOURS OF PLEASURE you will receive while listening to "Wish I Were Here." You, too, will wish you were there.

Very relaxing in South Florida traffic.
Doug's lyrics are refreshing and original, if sometimes raunchy. I like his rendition of "Dancing Queen", but "You Smell Nice" and "Osama Bin Enron" are my favorites. I liked the music too.

This is great, buy now and buy often
This is a great disc which I can't seem to pry out of my car stereo. "Brian's Other Song" is a delightful little earworm. Funny lyrics and Doug is a good gee-tar player as well.

I started out with a few favorites, American Flag Underware and You Smell Nice and became addicited to the whole disc.

Funny and smart! Like MXC dialog set to music!
I have always loved [Flock of..] Doug's songs since he was the host of Open Mike Night at the Chatterbox Pub in Minneapolis!

He is all smart and stuff, so the lyrics have multiple levels of funny and sad all together, and the musical riffs are hatefully infectious! :D

You will find yourself humming these in the car even without the CD. Then you will have to turn around and drive back to get the CD, cuz he can't really have just said... Oh yes he did!

Sweet and innocent enough sounding to be kid's music, but full of coy sex jokes and bawdy humor. Buy the disc even if it's just for "Brian's Other Song" which is the most delicious love-denied lyric I have heard in a long time. Also an homage to Lou Reed's "Walk On The Wild Side".

Rock on Flock of Doug!
