Product Notes

'Woo-hoo! This is a great record, and you know I don't say that often. A heavy Beatles influence is evident (if singer/guitarist Steve Rouach ain't a Brit, he wishes he was), but Rouach's arresting, surreal lyrics ('Carnival horses...wishing for sugar/they can't eat with plastic heads'); the band's fresh, often surprising arrangements; and a palpable swagger in the performances and recording, rescues Imaginary Bill from the ranks of mere retro posers. This is the real deal, kids! Hard for me to pick a fave from a dozen winners, but that's what they don't pay me for, so I'll toss out 'Clark Kent,' 'Wash,' 'Bottom Feeder,' the aforequoted 'Pantomime Horses' and 'About Her Toupee' - how's that, boys? The only thing more surprising than the quality of this record is the number of gigs this ostensibly Brooklyn-based band play on Long Island; makes me wonder if I should give the suburban wasteland a second chance...nahh. Fans of Robyn Hitchcock, XTC, Elvis Costello, Blur, the Wannadies, etc. Should take special note of a special band.' -Demo Universe (August 2001)
