Bobby Conn - The Golden Age (2001) Retail CD
Obsessed with the sounds of the decadent end-days of 70s radio, Bobby Conn creates his own schizoid musical world on The Golden Age, a pick and mix of the styles that dominated the period, with the occasional Prince-style falsetto thrown in for good measure. As a result, at times this sounds like a dirtier, more ambitious version of Beck's Midnite Vultures. But while Bobby clearly shares Beck's enthusiasm for bizarre musical hybrids, the Jim O'Rourke produced The Golden Age is a far more diverse and slightly deranged album. There's the funked-up synth disco of "No Revolution" and the high-pitchedmore… soul refrain of "Winners", but there's also the Burt Bacharach intro on "The Best Years of Our Lives" and hyper glam-rock of "Pumper", all tied together by Monica BouBou's brilliant violin melodies. At the same time, the knowing lyrics will often have you hitting the rewind button. Bobby Conn's outlook on life has caused offence, and The Golden Age should be no exception. "Angels", for example, is the story of hapless teenage sexploits at a drug-addled pool party; when Bobby starts singing "angels are breakin' my balls again, balls again" like his swimwear's too tight, most would agree it's more than just amusing or offensive--it's inspired. -Caroline Butler
