NWW generally gets pegged as "difficult" or "dark", but this one (my favorite) is hilarious. Like seriously laugh-out-loud, with actual jokes in it. A dense collage that seems to reference schmaltzy lounge and easy-listening records. Quick language fragments punctuate the juxtaposed swing melodies and LP skips, grounding it all in a recognizable absurd humor that makes this one of the most accessible platters in the NWW catalog. Someone (Foetus?) croons a few bars of a mangled classic, someone else suggests an absurd phrase to be used as a title, and someone somewhere howls and laughs... the tense and strange atmosphere is so carefully constructed that each new listen reveals more action bubbling beneath. In that sense, it's on par with "Trout Mask Replica", "The Lighthouse", or "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers" on sheer amount-of-information-per-minute.
