Ever since i read that Thomas Frank book, ‘What’s the Matter with Kansas?’, i’ve been hunting for those mp3s of the Embarrassment that i snagged from Audiogalaxy. No luck! I managed to download them again though, and probably a better quality Ha! I never would have gotten this right, as i had translated them into a mod revival band in my head, and they’re a lot more interesting than that.
The Embarrassment “Sex Drive” It’s another of those driving compilation anthems, not quite a Modern Lovers “Roadrunner” but close enough. Lots of punkish motorik teenage angst to go around.
The Embarrassment “Don’t Choose the Wrong Song” I never heard this one before, as it would have freaked me out on how eerily close to the Soft Boys it comes with its Beefheart funk.
