Chinese Burns "Calculator" ep

(Windian) Though  a less lazy writer might fashion a long list of what makes this record so amazing, I'll lmit it to one: Despite being perfect practitioners of a retro rock aesthetic that combines Stooges/garage rock/VU/proto punk, etc., they eschew retro-ism lyrically, thus, you get '69 Iggy singing about e-mail and his computer desktop. BTW, if you were hoping this record contained that famous skit where the amused husband has circles talked around him by his daffy, dumb wife explaining why she ruined the rice, you are thinking of Chinese Burns and Allen, a totally different act.
