Present Uncle Jim, True Tales Of Homeland Security

(Empirical - EMP001) 7-inch $10.00

“Uncle Jim was a fast-talking, jive-ass, wheeler-dealer pot-smoking weirdo,” observes Mark Prindle, “But … he now sounds like a tired old drunk who has seen too much (and committed too many moral crimes) to view anybody else in the world with anything but complete disdain. He knows you can’t compete with him on any level, and he can’t stand to look at you. He speaks of the devil and hacking up Asians with a machete. He spits out rhymes as clever and unique as those of any rap artist, and he does so over cool smoky club jazz — brush drums, jazzy guitar noodling, cocktail lounge piano and trumpet.” Black vinyl from 2003.
