What some people had to say about this release:
I was in prison for conscientious objection and one day in midst of all the greyness I received a package containing weird music and in an instant Deadfood's Me Time managed to brighten my day. It was the weirdest piece of music I had ever heard. Putting together odd organ sounds, twisted guitars, screaming vocals, experimental electronics, even horns and throwing some grindcore in to the middle. The songs are catchy and manage to keep your intrest up by changing alot from very slow to ultrafast grind.
Experimental and weird. Love it!
Intro/General Thoughts: Well, this is interesting. I wonder if Deadfood sent their CD in to indie-music.com
just to watch us stammer as we tried to figure out what we were listening to. It’s definitely surreal. But for those of you who are so sick of Top 40 Radio that you’ve gotten Dad’s sledgehammer out of the garage and are about to destroy your entertainment center, stop and listen to this.
Type of Music: You must be kidding. You want me to classify this? Take hardcore punk, snippets of dialogue from movies and television, and lots and lots of distortion, put it in a blender with 40 ounces of malt liquor (the band’s drink of choice) and lean on the power button until the resulting music makes your ears bleed.
Hometown: Los Angeles, California
Highs: It’s definitely not boring. The song “40 oz” sounds like a drunken blues guy wailing away on an old record player. “Oodabedef” is an audio collage of screaming and equipment feedback. The musical explosions of “If I could” sound like a piano fell on top of a high school marching band during rehearsals. I found myself staying tuned just to see what this band was going to do next.
Lows: Some of this music gets a bit self-indulgent. “How Many Blackbirds Were Baked in the Pie” is the same couple of riffs over and over.
Favorite Lyrics: Ummm, ok, I’ll give it a shot. From “Satan”
“(something) (something) (something)
(something) (something) (something) (something)
(something) (something) (something) (something) (something),
It’s Christmas time again.”
Fans: If you think the Violent Femmes were too conservative musically, “Me Time” is for you.
Foes: People who want their music to make sense. And if you’re easily offended by song titles like “Happy Retards,” this CD is not for you.
Summary: “Me Time” is the variety in your musical diet that just might agree with you. Let it blow your mind a little.
