Every now and then, a record quietly comes out that knocks your proverbial Pumas off. Late last month, McLusky released "The Difference Between Me And You Is That I'm Not On Fire" to little fanfare. (Odd, because Steve Albini goes way back with the band, and he's on production as well.) Anyway, THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE FUCKING RECORD GO OUT AND GET A COPY RIGHT NOW. RIGHT NOW! Here's the only description I can muster:
It's the soundtrack of 3 am after the best party you've ever been to...the Jesus Lizard is giggling in the corner doing bong hits with Isaac Brock while Johnny Marr is noodling around with 3/4 of Mogwai on the guitar. Stuart Braithwaite runs by with a lampshade on his head and you just can't believe that you're there.
Yeeha! Rock is back!
