(Fifth Column) Used CD $5.00 (Out-of-stock)

First, a word from Andy Alabama, who we must congratulate for hilariously riling up flat-footed Amazon commentators: “I think that this was from a more experimental period in the great man’s career…. I liked Eddie much better when he was more willing to take risks artistically. What with his intractable fight against Ticketmaster, it seems that he has fallen into something of a stylistic rut. Not so on this record — these were truly Eddie’s halcyon days. A must own for any true-blue Pearl Jam fan.” Good times, good times. On To Live and Shave in L.A.'s first full-length album of 1995, Tom Smith’s “preoccupations with Rashomon, Pound, King Tubby, and (ahem) power-fucking were co-mingled in an ungovernable torrent of splintered hubris. Whatever ‘full-on insane’ you think you have, believe me, we beat you to it, forever.” Guests include Harry Pussy’s Bill Orcutt, Don Fleming from ½ Japanese and Velvet Monkeys, Action Swingers’ Ned Hayden (yeah, man, on alto sax), Peach of Immortality’s Jared Louche, the biomechanical Nandor Nevai (mmm, das nice, Max), and The Flying Luttenbachers’ Weasel Walter.
