Weights

And, yup, 30 minutes of hitting the heavy iron.

It’s definitely Monday.

This evenings muscle-ripping, strength building, He-man soundtrack is the ‘Rhinoplasty‘ EP by Primus.

Call it ‘Miscellaneous Debris, Pt. 2.‘  An EP of covers and live cuts designed to buy time between albums, ‘Rhinoplasty‘  is another small treasure for fans.

When Primus covers songs, it rarely sticks to the original recorded versions, preferring to turn in new, sometimes startling arrangements that are often unpredictable. If the band hasn’t chosen any surprising covers – there are more Peter Gabriel (‘The Family and the Fishing Net‘) and XTC tunes, as well as Police (‘Behind My Camel‘), Stanley Clarke, Metallica, Jerry Reed (‘Amos Moses‘) and, yes, Andy Partridge (which, for the record, is more deranged than Andy Partridge himself on a bad day) songs, plus a new version of their own ‘Too Many Puppies‘ – it makes up for it with great performances.  This is certainly an EP intended for the dedicated, but it does the most important thing any specialist release can do – it doesn’t disappoint.

About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
