Artist: The Flying Lizards

Album: Fourth Wall

Appears On (Mixes): Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!; Hobotic Mixed CDs Volumes 1-5

Song Notes: Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!: Unlike the previous track, this actually was one of the singles from the album it was on, Fourth Wall, but the single tanked, and the album did even worse. This one is very hard to find; the LP is relatively hard to find, but the CD is almost impossible; it was only released, against the creator's wishes, in Japan, and it went out of print almost immediately. That said, it's really worth finding; it's quite possibly the best album by The Flying Lizards, though the first, self-titled one is very good as well (and also readily available; it too was only released on CD in Japan, but unlike its followup, remains in print). Patti Paladin sings and wrote the lyrics; Fourth Wall was the collaboration between her and primary member David Cunningham, and her style is the most different from all the Flying Lizards vocalists. Most people are familiar with their stripped down cover of "Money", but this is wholly different. Pay special attention to the guitar solo; it's one of my favorite solos put on record. - Rev.
