The Gloworm Disappears [cassette] (Self-Released)

By: Gary Pig Gold

Seven (!) albums on and Jonathan Scott & Co. still haven't mastered the delicate art of double-tracking the vocals. But did that ever stop them Beatles? Nosiree-bob! What Gloworm does prove is this band can now produce tunes that actually sound stage-ready, maybe even road-tested, without once sacrificing the "roll" for the "rock". Even Jonathan's well-founded bubbleyum infatuations seem more sturdy and less syrupy this time, 'specially on "Plasticine" and (Title of the Year!) "Jukeboxanne", while "Tomato Vendetta" and "Jo Beam" successfully tackle the twin terrors of Tone-poem and Electro-poop head on. But wait: That's Not All! Ever wonder what a Zeppelin/Monkees collision would sound like? And whaddaya think Elvis and his Attractions could achieve if there were any under-40's left within their ranks? The answers, my friends, are all to be found on this one little tape... along with an absolute cracker entitled "Go Go Gumball" that deserves to win each and every Country Music Ass(ociation) award next year, by gum!
