Moldy Peaches – "Moldy Peaches 2000 (Unreleased Cutz and Live Jamz 1994-2002)", Rough Trade
www.roughtradeamerica.com

Sometimes it's best not to be in on an in-joke. The duo of Moldy Peaches - basically the core members of Adam Green and Kimya Dawson - create the sort of music that can only be called "kindergarten pop". This double album is one of the worst (or best, whichever side of the fence you're sitting on) examples of low-fi amateur music I remember being put on record, and actually released. The humour here is infantile (just imagine how bad the lyrics are on tracks such as "Who's got the crack", "I wanna be a hulkamaniac", and "Downloading porn w/dave"), the quality of the recording quite inexcusably poor (which I'm afraid was the intention of the duo), and the entire two hours just don't gel. I think the band understands the concept of pop music (even when melodies are poor and lyrics wretchedly awful); it's just that they haven't learned yet how to make all the elements work in their favour. I can only think of one compliment for this messy record. It would probably sound good on a poor quality, cheap cassette car stereo.
