Duf Davis & The Book Club
Endless, Mindless Violence (The Galactic Recording Co., 51 Grover Avenue, Princeton, NJ 08540)

By: Gary Pig Gold

The same kind of tongue-up-cheek brilliance that always made the Bonzo Dog (Doo-Dah) Band so much cleverer than the Mothers (of Invention) positively infests this album, from the opening wallop of "Rage" through the anti-New Age noodling of "Baby Universe". And in between, Duf serves up a deadly antidote to the current New Country drivel ("Father to Son A'Calling"), speculates on the possibilities of a John Hartford/Buddy Holly duet ("Hold Me Close") and, in "Folk Song From Year 3927", says in 30 seconds what a week full of Congressional hearings on the Waco debacle couldn't muster up. Need I say more? For those whose sense of wit just isn't tickled by such comparative lightweights as They Must Be Giants and Them Crash Test Dummies, a dose of Endless, Mindless Violence seems the only logical solution.
