Timmy's Organism / John Wesley Coleman split
There’s a million ways to go crazy, which is one reason it’s so depressing to hear so many bands that sound alike. Two fellows with no problem getting outside themselves are John Wesley Coleman and Timmy Vulgar. Coleman’s been bashing out demented pop songs buried in fuzz and blather for about a decade; here he provides a track that sounds like The Buzzcocks pretending to be a drunk Bruce Springsteen trying to play a Nick Lowe song that he hasn’t written yet. Guaranteed to be stuck in your hair for a week. Vulgar began his career as a punk in Michigan but his bands Human Eye and Timmy’s Organism quickly moved from angry personal attacks to more epic attacks on the entire universe. “Mind Over Matter” continues his quest to musically shoot out the sun. Jimi Hendrix, Timothy Leary and a whole bunch of musical lizards like this.
