Title: Little Sickie: First Signs of Infection
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The A-side is a live recording of a very special Turners Falls performance, at which singer David Russell literally called it in on Skype. Many audience members remarked how much more relaxing (not to mention relaxed) the band seemed without Mr. Russell in their midst. And that may or may not be, but this here is definite sonic evidence that the band played real well without Davids physical hectoring. Lauri McNamara also calls in her electronic rinkery, but the rest of em - Ted, Scott, Sophie, Jen and Brett - provide a wiggling backdrop of nudist/dada minimalism. Shorn of all clothes, the four played in semi-darkness on an array of gadgets that would have made James Bond green with envy. None of the devices can actually be named here, since patents on all of them are pending, but you can hear their beauty. A sprong here, a plonk there, and above it all - a withering dither. The flip was recorded at the old Feeding Tube store with Olivia, Sophie, Scott, Ted and David, all fully dressed, and playing like they were a circle of overwound mechanical toys. Whats it like being ready to pop? Just give this a spin and youll know more than you ever dreamed possible. And thats what they call Little Sickie." -- Byron Coley (2016)

Title: The Cleansing Power Of Fruit
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Despite Matt Kreftings resistance to all things fruity, there is little doubt that these friendly non-mineral, non-animal products of nature have the capacity to flush poisons through our internal trails far better than most anything else. Especially eggs. Still, it is an egg that remains Dave "Mr. E. Candy" Russells muse as he fumbles his way through a vocal universe that is collapsing around his French ears. Something like a cross between Crocus Behemoth, Little Lulu and Colonel Bruce Hampton, Russell is on fire here, his vocals emerging from fruit-caked lips as though they were pearls shot from the buttocks of an all-seeing vizier. What Russell does exactly is hard to say, but its slow-kid, sing-song quality is bizarrely captivating. And the band here is a goddamn all-star Valley ensemble -- Tim Sheldon, Andy Crespo, Brett Robinson, Ted Lee, Vanessa Brewster, John Moloney, Jack Callahan, Ian St. George and special guests -- Matt Valentine, Jeff Hartford, Conrad Capistran and Lisette Lopez. Recorded over the last couple of years in various places around Western Massachusetts, it makes a strong case for Egg Eggs as the most discordian combo in this part of the universe. The comparison your brain will keep returning to is the Hampton Grease Band, updated to shine stylishly in a post-noise-rock milieu. It shares the same mix of brilliance, annoyingness and sheer what-the-fuckery as Music To Eat. And that aint hay. Nor is it fruit. Hurray!" - Feeding Tube.
