Fire Breathing Clones on Cellular Phones
After recording several late-90's records with Billy Childish and Holly Golighty, Dan Melchior formed the Broke Revue whose first record was This Love Is Real for Sympathy for the Record Industry back in 1999. From there, Dan Melchior's Broke Revue have produced consistently quality records for other respected labels such as Smart Guy and In The Red. The two records to come out on the aforementioned In The Red - Heavy Dirt and Bitterness, Spite, Rage, and Scorn - established Dan as a prolific yet uncompromising songwriter. After various critically well-received releases, Dan Melchior returns with Fire Breathing Clones on Cellular Phones, perhaps his most inimitable record to date. A low-fi gem of a record lures you in with the hypnotic "Sparrows and Starlings," then the British ex-Pat gives you 14 snickering irresistible cuts. Recorded in apartments and studios of various shapes and sizes for effect in New York City, this is Dan Melchior's first full-length of Plastic Records.
