Boil That Dust Speck
""Boil That Dust Speck" was wrenched out of my darkest depths while in the throes of an exciting variety of emotional torment, this album is a lot less goofy than 'hat'", states Keneally. "I had a 'Dust Speck' song sequence all ready to go, a couple of days before the editing session was scheduled, but I went on a late night joyride with Bryan Beller and Tom Freeman and listened to it with them-it was so bloody depressing I couldn't believe it. At the last minute I constructed, on paper, the weird little edit-collages that spice up the second half of the album and keep it from getting too portentious." With that in mind, check out the magic-in-action of "Sooth", the hard rock of "'Cause of Breakfast" and the fast, but melodically strange "Them Dolphins is Smart". Also, "Bullys (sic)" contains an extended guitar solo, for fans of that kind of thing!
