  • King Tears Mortuary
  • Asleep At The Wheel Of Fortune EP 7"

Despite having a cover image that looks like the opening credits of Silicon Valley, the second KING TEARS MORTUARY single continues the winning ways of its bent, lo-fidelity pop predecessor, "Safe Sex".

The Australian unit put forth un certain joie de vivre that is absolutely infectious, with girl/boy vocals and tonal shifts that range from developmentally-delayed bashing to screeching noise to winsome, albeit raw and loud, pop. Fantastic stuff, and I encourage you to try ‘em both.


"Why should some people walk barefoot, so that others can travel in luxurious cars? Why should some live for thirty-five years, so that others can live for seventy years? Why should some be miserably poor, so that others can be hugely rich? I speak on behalf of the children in the world who do not have a piece of bread. I speak on the behalf of the sick who have no medicine, of those whose rights to life and human dignity have been denied."

— Fidel Castro’s message to the UN General Assembly, 1979
