World’s Lousy With Ideas 9Almost Ready
***After a three year hiatus the only compilation series that matters returns to the world of underground rock'n'rolla. The World's Lousy With Ideas Volume 9 picks up right where the long-playing vol. 8 left off: Columbus, Ohio. Masters of melancholy THE CHEATER SLICKS grace the franchise with the inclusion of "Silver Fox," a perfect spring anthem for hanging your head low. Another guitar-wrecked classic delivered from a band on their 25th Anniversary victory lap. Fuck the kids. On Side B the Almost Ready label again proves they are international players with THEE SPIVS "Men Don't Cry," a big beat ball-buster delivered all the way from Ol' Blighty. True punk rockers with the teeth and chops to prove it. Closing out the installment, we return again to Ohio, with an unbeatable rock tune via PSANDWICH called "Singing in the Showers" on which RON HOUSE’s delivery of the Fun 4 "classic" proves to us once again why he is a first ballot Hall of Famer. A true living legend amongst a sea of walking dead frontmen. This ninth installment should remind us all what we've been missing, as it could be the finest and classiest World's Lousy volume to date, with all the ridiculous sleeve variations and high-brow artwork we've come to expect.
