ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the debut recording from Madison, Wisconsin's The Gomers. It consists of 26 unique tracks, each touching on a different mood and style. From the biting alternative rock of "Thanks for the Ride, Lady" to the schmaltzy lounge pop of "Sulu" to the "hip," over-bloated production of "It's Not Unusual" to the preposterously silly "Jewish Rapper," Sofa King Good will never fall victim to criticisms of monotony and homogenity. Yes, many of these songs are utterly ridiculous, but beneath it all is an extremely talented band who thankfully doesn't take itself or rock & roll too seriously. Guitarist and chief songwriter Biff Blumfumgagnge appears to be the principal conspirator in this madness. The novelty references to Tom Jones, the Beach Boys, the Osmonds and others notwithstanding, what seems to be at the core of the Gomers is the influence of such off-kilter artists like Stan Ridgeway, Devo, Talking Heads, B-52's and Adrian Belew. Most of the madcap tendancies seem to emanate from the uninhibited Blufmfumgagnge in his playing and songwriting, and the remaining like-minded Gomers follow his lead. This 74 minute compendium of bizarre, fun tunes has been featured on Dr. Demento, the Subgenius Hour of Slack, the Bob & Tom Show, and every Friday at 7:30am on WMMM 105.5fm, this version of "It's Not Unusual" is played. Looking for Mashups and song parodies? Fish, Jewish, sex, horror and alien themes? Yes dear reader - all that and more:

1 Young Man Blues - Megaphone Crooner style Who/blues parody
2 I Really Hate the Bank - prog rock in 5/4 and 6/8 w. a Steely Dan mashup @ end

6 It's Not Unusual - big bachelor pad Tom Jones cover
7 Jewish Rapper - rock rap tune explains the Mizzuzah, Dradle and more

10 Supercharged 1:31 - hard rock funk fun

"The Human Cannonball hurtles over the circus crowd, grinning comfortably, waving, ass barbecued, headed for a hard landing Godknowswhere. These are the Gomers. They do this for you." - Jonathan Zarov, WORT 89.9 FM
