Upstairs In Your RoomShrimper
*** Refrigerator's seventh album in their tenth year as a band returns to the rusted-out, Peavey-drenched feedback of their earlier records on the Communion label with eleven new songs recorded over two years by Steve Folta at his Junket studio, including compositions written during the band's European tour in 2003. Besides touring with Sebadoh in the fall, Allen and Dennis Callaci, Chris Jones, and Daniel Brodo will be doing guerilla dates at comedy clubs up and down the West Coast. What does the record sound like? Busted up soda pop through a shorting-out vending machine, thumbnail sketches in the vein of a lowbrow Ray Davies or upper end David Cassidy. That's right, file next to their contemporaries Smog, The Piltones, and Dump.
The packaging includes an extensive mini-magazine touching upon issues ranging from spotting Stevie Nicks at the local Stop & Shop to Peter Jennings rescinding his newfound American citizenship. No joke.
