This was one of those homemade albums I simply had to take a chance on. Self released in 1981, this Voltz character recorded the album in his bedroom, utilizing Drum Drops because real drums would've caused a horrible racket and Larry's Mom would have gotten totally pissed. On the one hand, this is a very impressive effort. He obviously put a lot of work into it in an age before Protools put magnetic tape manufacturers out of business. On the other hand, this is some real pompous over the top weird shit.
"It's good for the land and we'll relieve all this commotion
Our nuclear plants can sail upon the ocean
a novel idea they're such clever sharks
I think I see a killer whale glowing in the dark"
At least that sort of makes sense. I couldn't pick up on the lyrics while listening to the album, so I finally forced myself to read the lyrics printed on the back. I still can't pick up on the lyrics and I don't want to. He seems to be upset over environmental issues and stuff like credit cards and bad TV. Who isn't?
In any case, this is a very ambitious effort, and one can't help but wonder if Larry ever found the inspiration and wherewithal to make another album. Hmmm?
