Misery Patriot

(Superlux) Used 7-inch $3.00

1994 single by Matt Valentine, Pat Gubler, and Marc Wolf. “At any given moment,” says CMJ Music Journal, “half the band [tries] to hold the song together as the other half tries to break it apart completely. The whole thing falls into and out of meter repeatedly, chord sequences don’t always reach their destination, and … [it] shambles to a conclusion before it collapses.” On the flip, “Siren Howl / Holed” “slides aphasically from classic rock smoothness to fluid-spewing explosions.” Numbered edition of 500
