The Odd - Rock Rock Burn
The Odd Rock, Rock, Burn! 45 (Jet Star, 1998)
Here we go again, every ten or twelve posts I trot out another one of these records, a 90s 7" whose unacknowledged swellness inspired me to agree to help get this blog a-goin' in the first place. Isn't this thing just the epitome of a fun, rocking 7" garage single? The production is intelligent (nice overdubs), the songs are "merely" spirited re-writes of 60s pop songs (sometimes two operating at the same time!) and the cover has that great thrown-together-on-the-kitchen-table look.
Catchy little fucker. Nothing to say about this because my searches didn't turn anything up but I think this was from Minnesota, based purely on some hazy half-forgotten convo at the time. I'm sure someone out there will chirp. -Ryan W.
When putting out a record there's really no way to know where it's going to end up, eventually. It was such a happy shock to see The Odd up on Static Party- thanks, glad you like it.
