RollanHofsós City


Published May 27, 2005

The cover and packaging for this CD is tasteful and classic… even the small card explaining that Rollan is the result of a six day drinking bender seemed charming in such packaging. As for the music, remember 1992? These guys really do. Competent musicians, they get the time signatures and guitar work down pat: of course, there are no words and no melodies. If this bores you, just do as we did in the office, sing “he likes all our pretty songs but he don’t know what it means” over the meandering tracks. If you’re desperate for a positive reference, and we were, we think you could say they’re something like God Speed You Black Emperor. In the same way that neighbour you had who used to get drunk and ram his head into the amplifier was something like Led Zeppelin.

Worth one beer. Cost two beers.
